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.
