I'm hoping you guys can give me some advice, I'm not sure if I should wait this out for a bit or go to the vet.
Last night after work, I picked my 7 month old female up from daycare. Everything seemed fine.
One thing she did that was a bit weird was when she was sitting waiting fro me to open my car door, she peed. I didn't even see her do it, just when I looked down, she'd peed. Now when I picked her up, she was inside, so maybe she really had to go and couldn't hold it anymore, I don't think the peeing is relevant, but wanted to mention it because it was something different.
Anyway, when I got home, I always help her out of the car so she's not jumping down. She whimpered a little when I went to pick her up. I had my hands full and thought maybe something I was carrying was sticking into her, but then when we were walking back to the house she seemed a little off in behind.
It's most noticeable when she's in a forward trot, or a canter gait. It's almost like she hops forward a bit with her right hind leg, but I'm not sure which one she's compensating for. Last night I thought it was her left, but I'm not positive.
I'm having hard time telling which leg it is, but I do think it's one of her back legs.
Do you think she just strained something during play? I'm so afraid of HD or something horrible like that.
Should I just wait and see if it improves? If so, if she doesn't seem to be improving, how long should I wait to take her in to the vet do you think?
I left her home today, it's her first time being left all day in her crate, so I hope she's going to be ok!
