Default Dog holding one of hos paws up & has a slight limp

My 2 year old GSD is holding his left paw up when he is standing & walks with a slight limp. Noticed it last night. Completely looked and felt all over his paw and entire leg. Nothing bothered him AT ALL. He still wants to be a fetching machine as well. Vet said to give it the weekend & give him some kids aspirin. There are lots of rocks in my back yard & he is all over the place. Ill give it through the weekend but i dont like seeing this.Anyone have any similar problems?

I had the same problem this week with my 7 yr Aus. Cattle Dog mix. She was fine in the morning and I got home later and she was barely putting any weight on her front leg. Like you, I felt all over and she didn't whine or pull away much so I figured I would give it a day (not the first time this has happened to her). By the next morning she was done to a slight limp and today she was out running with my GSD pup like it never happened.

My dogs injure their feet/legs all the time. Keep an eye on it, the limping should ease if it's not serious.

Hey Bama, We're just south of Huntsville, but I was born in B'ham! Welcome to the board! If he's not yelping in pain, it should be ok to wait and see how he does with it. If he's still favoring it, a vet visit would be a wise choice. Didn't see any of your earlier post, were there pics of your dog? There are several Bama people on this board, even an Aubie. One day we're gonna all meet somewhere and let our dogs play together, I suggested somewhere in B'ham, since that would be the most central place for us all. Is there a dog park or a dog friendly place you can recommend? Look forward to seeing more post from ya!

Thanks everyone. He is still limping around but wants to fetch & play. Crazy dog. He has not made one whine or whimper. Ill just keep my on it.

Bama4us. Nice to hear from another Bama GSD owner. I dont know anyone with another GSD in Bham. I really dont get on here much but Ill probably start getting on again. There is a fenced in dog park at George Ward Park off of Greensprings Ave.

Here are a few pix of Gus.

ever slept with your wrist bent down under a pillow, or just any joint aching in the morning. I do that all the time and have minor joint pain. he probably did the same. wouldn't worry about it.
