I agree with Brodysmom. Natural remedies won't work on a problem such as a LP. Some natural remedies may (may) help to sooth the pain a little but apart from that I can't see them helping otherwise.
We've just found out that Fern has a LP on her left back leg. Weird thing is we didn't even know. She runs around like a Whippet and never limps or anything. The vet was doing routine checks on her when we took her in for flu like symptoms and we sure got more than we bargained for
The good news is that because she is showing no signs of actually have a LP and because it's not giving her any problems we don't need to act on it. Only when/if she shows signs of distress from it do we need to take her back in, so here's hoping she will live just fine with it *crosses fingers* The vet even popped her little knee out and then back in again just to SHOW me
Boy was I mad. Like I didn't believe him when he told me she had one. There was no need to actually show me
Luckily she didn't seem to feel it (well she didn't show any signs anyway).
If your baby is in pain from this then I would really think about taking her back to the vet if it's possible...
Wishing her a speedy recovery from this. Give her snuggles from me and Fern xxx
