Default Limping on front leg

We have a 8 month puppy. He has been limping for the past couple of days when he walks. He also holds his left front paw up when he sits. He whines, pants, and wants to be held. We gave him an anti-inflamatory pill and made him a calming tea which he mixed with beef broth so he could drink it. Has anybody experienced an issue like this?

Thanks a lot!

At best, a strain or sprain or possibly a mild foot injury (toenail, pad laceration, etc.)? However, panosteitis and elbow dysplasia are also very real possibilities. A vet exam and possibly an X-ray may be in order.

The panting is most likely from pain. An x-ray is needed. Poor pup
