Default Is something wrong with my pup?!

Hi guys, my pup is around 10 months old, and for the past 3-4 days he has become extremely lethargic, ( laying down all day,sleeping) I didnt think much of it, as he would eat his food, and drink water, and he would poo and pee just fine, he seemed to have a limp in his front right paw, but it seems to come and go, but in the last maybe day it seems to have gotten worse, we had to actually force him to go outside so he could go pee and poo, and he doesnt seem to have that spring to his step anymore, and about an hour ago he threw up a small mucous type fluid, Should I be worried and be rushing him to the vet? or should i wait a few more days to see if he gets over it?

I would take him to the vet. I have never had a healthy 10 month old act like that. Has he stopped eating in the last day that he has gotten worse?

Possibly pano (growing pains), the vomiting mucous though, maybe related from stress/pain and empty belly...was there yellow bile? how long after being fed?
Normal for the digestive system to have mucous as it lines the system. There are herbals (slippery elm) used to protect and produce mucous to assist repair and prevent bacteria from adhering to the lining when things get out of whack.

Not sure how long pano can run for, depends on the dog, what you feed etc...but there are homeopathics that may help as well as anti-inflammatory herbs/suppliments

no, he'll eat his food just fine, he'll go for walks, but doesnt really get excited for them he'll go at a very slow pace, which is a complete 180 from how he was last week

it was about 3 hours after he ate, and it looked sorta like spit,
another thing he doesnt come running to greet us anymore, he'll wag his tail, but just wait for you to come to him, and perfers to lay by himself, he will actually get up and go to a quieter room to sleep, hes done this before, but not this frequently
