limp and pain in front paw/leg

My pup, 16 months old now, occasionally will limp for a little bit and then be ok. It is her front paws and I have thought that she has gotten into the thorny vines that grown everywhere down here in the south. But today she has yelped and limped and just sat down when I put her down. When I do coax her to come to me she limps on her front right paw. I have clipped the hair away from her pads and taken a magnifier to see if I can tell if there is a splinter or briar. Nothing. She doesn't complain when I press any of her paw pads or in between them. I thought I would baby her, ie: carry her around, for a day or two and if it continues, of course go to the vet. Any ideas?

Thanks for any input.

I'd go to the vet sooner rather than later if I were you. But that's just me.

I agree with Karen. Why wait for a day or two? You've checked her pads and found nothing obvious. I think it's time for a vet visit now.

Well, she did it again, she is now walking and running just fine. You would swear she is in terrible pain and then an hour later, nothing.

Another vote for the vet. I would be worried that she sprained something and is constantly re-injuring it. Yelping and limping isn't good.

TTFN,
Pam

I would go see a vet after a few days of intermittent limping. I waited with Benji , because it was intermittent.. I regret this now, after finding out he needs to have surgery..

Calling in the morning to make an appointment. She acts/feels fine now so I hope my vet figures it out... Thank you for your input, all. She is so special to me, I don't want to see her in pain or needing something I'm not giving/getting for her.

I see this post was from 2014 so the hopes of getting an update are slim to none.

So for the rest of you who read this! I posted yesterday in the "limping when ollie wakes up" thread. Since my puppy had the exact same thing... after doing a further exam, I think it is his paw effecting his leg and causing the limp.

Duke goes to the vet on July 5th but we have quite a eventful weekend ahead, I'm going to restrict his movement as much as possible and try and check out the paw some more.

It almost looks like the paw was split on the top "toe" part... it has the circle and then a bit of hair and then another hard black line and then hair and then middle pad :S from what I can see its not red or anything just looks like... best way to describe it would be think about when you get a hang nail but in paw terms :S I'm going to take a picture tonight he will let me. He pulls his paw away when I was trying to feel and look, he did not like me touching it.
