My dog is acting odd.

Hi there, I'm new to this forum and I'm not sure if this is the right section, but I'm really desperate right now.

As my mom was going to bring my sister somewhere, she noticed my dog Smudge was acting odd. He looked afraid and he was limping. His front right leg looked like it was hurting him. When my mom left, Smudge just laid down and looked like he was tired, but he wasn't a couple minutes ago. He's breathing kind of shallow, and i cant find the source of the pain on the leg. He doesn't react to anywhere that i touch. I don't want to jump to conclusions that he's dying or anything, but I'm kind of afraid. Any idea what could be wrong?

He usually breaths like that when he's going to sleep, but it just seems a little...different. I first thought that maybe my other dog Scrappy was fighting with him and he maybe hurt his paw, but they bark when they fight and i didn't hear any barking. Maybe he just banged his paw or something. I'll keep you guys updated.

Any breathing problem is considered an emergency. At least call the vet and see what s/he says. The reason I say this is because my parents had a Bassethound that got stung by a bee and was allergic. He started to swell and it blocked off his airway. They live a half mile from the vet so the dog was able to be saved, but some people aren't so lucky.

It could be an allergy or something that is swelling his throat and you can't tell by looking. Most vets will answer quick questions over the phone.
