Question about my dog limping
Yesterday evening Ruffles was running in our back yard, in circles around me. She stopped suddenly and started limping. She didn't yelp. I thought she slipped on maybe stepped on something. It was her right rear leg.
Within 5 minutes she's walking with a slight limp and 10 minutes later she's fine. Last night we're out for a walk and she lets out a cry and starts limping. I carry her home and soon after that she's fine again. Today the same thing again but she was only walking not running. Within a few minutes she's fine again.
I looked at her paw and I don't see any thorn or sticker. She doesn't cry or snap when I put pressure on her paw or touch her leg.
I know it's hard to tell from just a description but could it be this luxating patella I keep reading about in here or could it just be a minor muscle ache or sprain?
Thanks for any advice.
