Limping on Front Legs
I am brand new to this website. I made an account, because I am worried about my 7 month old German Shepherd puppy, Krueger. For about two weeks now Krueger has been limping off and on. He mostly limps on his front right leg. When he sits down, he puts his paw in the air and will not allow it to touch the ground. He will also try to give me his paw as much as possible. Over the weekend, the limping has been getting worse. He is barely putting any pressure on his front right leg. I currently have him laying on a heating blanket to see if warmth would help if it's a muscle issue.
I have looked at his paws, and nothing seems out of the ordinary. I touch, rub, and squeeze his paw and legs to see if I can find the area of pain. He hasn't given me a whimper or anything when I touch his paw/leg.
We do have a year and a half year old Rottweiler who weighs about 130 pounds. Krueger and him play rough at times. This could be a cause if something is strained or pulled.
I am just writing this entry to see if anyone else has experienced this sort of problem with their German Shepherds. I will take him to the vet in two days (my day off) if the problem does not get better. He's my little baby and I just want him to feel better.
