I have a 10 month old male German shepherd pup named Clif. He loves to play and is full of energy. Some weekends when we are visiting family he plays with two other dogs (he knows them well now) and the backyard is all cement. Whenever we leave there after a weekend Clif limps around for a few days. We think it is just because of the cement and non stop playing but I wanted to ask if anyone else encountered similar things or had any other thoughts about it. Any help would be appreciated =]
The first time I noticed it was the front legs but he seemed to be walking weird all together this last weekend. I didnt check his paws, I'll have to do that and see. I wasnt sure if the muscles in there arms and legs get sore like humans when we push ourselves to hard?.
Thanks for the info everyone. I believe it was his paws after all he was already back to normal last night (1 1/2 days later) and it only happens after he plays on the concrete, so that must be to blame!
