Puppy back leg problem?
Thought I'd post this on here as it's now 9pm here in the UK and I'm not sure what to do (my local emergency vet is awful and once diagnosed my other dog with parvo when he actually had swallowed a head off of an ornament and it was stuck in his gut).
So I've been taking my 16 week old pup out for 3 x 10 min walks per day and he's been doing great. Today we went to the park and I guess time got the better of me and we ended up walking for 30 mins flat.
Since we got home he's been struggling to put any weight on his back legs and is making the most horrendous crying noises everytime he tries to. I guess I'm looking for reassurance that it might be a strain from over-exercising him today and that he should be OK in the morning after a good nights sleep? I feel truly awful that this could be my fault and feel very helpless. I've been massaging his legs and he doesn't cry when I touch them or move them around - just when he puts weight on them.
Thanks a lot
