Health Problem - My dog is limping
Hi. I just joined because I noticed this morning that my dog was limping and it's causing me some concern. She's a one year old doberman/dalmatian mix (she's a rescue), and a little bit overweight. For some reason, she seems to be finding some difficulty with her right rear paw, and she lifts it off the ground some times when she walks, as if it were hurting her. She's not whining or crying though, and some times, when she runs, she seems to be doing fine. I checked her paw and I cannot find any puncture or inflammation anywhere, which leads me to think that maybe her sister bit her too hard during one of her rough play sessions causing the limp, or that she may have hit her hard running somewhere around the house (we don't have a backyard, and she didn't go out because of her limp). So, I wonder if you think that I should be concerned or just wait a couple of days to see if it resolves itself. Any help would be appreciated.
