Default Puppy Health Problems?

Hello all. Got a 3 month old female, and there are somethings that are bothering at the moment.
1. She sounds like she has a stuffy nose throughout the day. Like she will be fine one minute, and the next she sounds like her nose is stuffy when she tries to breath in. Is it because of the cold? I live in PA, and its been pretty cold here.

2. My parents have two labs that our girl loves to play with. And they can be pretty rough at times. When one of them runs and bumps her pretty hard she always seems to limp afterwards. Not to mention she slipped on ice two weeks ago and limped as well. Her one front paw mind you. Within an hour of each incident , she resumed to walking like her normal self, as well as running around. Do you think that shes just dramatic about it? Or do you think something could be wrong, such as a torn ligament or tendon?

Opinions are greatly appreciated! Thank you.

1. could be reverse sneezing, could be an alergy, could be time to call your vet.
2. could be pano, could be nothing. Most likely nothing. But talk to your vet. Often they will answer concerns over the phone and you will not have to go in. I suspect that a torn ligament would not have just a 1 hour recovery but I am not a vet and a vet is really whom you should speak to.

you don't want those bulky labs running and bumping her .

Damage to a growth plate can cause orthopedic damage --
