Moaning in pain?
 
The past week my dog has been moaning and groaning with a tinge of cry every night ( only at night ) like he is in pain or just can't get comfortable.
He will moan and change positions, moan then move to a different spot.

He did trip while running up the stairs and face planted.. poor thing and has a limp in his right front leg. But when I put pressure on his leg and foot and feel around nothing happens no noises or biting.

I'm about ready to take him to the vet. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem yet?
I feel so bad he is up all night keeping me up all night. : (
I just wanna help my buddy.

We had this.
I thought it was pano but it turned out to be a shoulder muscle pull.
The vet prescribed Rimadyl but I just rested him in his crate and gave Arnica.
Healed in about a week.
Hope your boy feels better soon!

Take him to the the vet, could be many different causes, leg/shoulder, might of damaged teeth due to the face plant, might even be something unrelated to the trip incident, best to take him to the vet and get him checked out.

Nigel is right.
I read your post as saying that you're just about to go to the vet.
If what you meant was that you're thinking about it, definitely go.

Thank you guys.
He has been at it all morning so I know something is wrong. He hasn't moaned and whimpered this much yet and now i'm really worried. Called the hubby and were making an appointment for him. Hopefully we can get him some pain medication.
