|harmony||I seen this in young dogs growing pains, but two ? they are still growing and the mental stuff is not even matured yet. I do a prelim, and yes that means x rays involved.|

It could be anything - from soft tissue to bone or joints. Soft tissue injuries (tendons, muscle, ligaments) normally do not show up on x-ray, but doing an x-ray can rule out if there is a skeletal injury. If nothing pops out as abnormal to your vet, they will probably recommend a period of rest with anti-inflammatories. If no improvement, then an appt with an ortho vet will be necessary.
Our girl had a torn ligament last year and had surgery to correct the problem. The thing that concerns me about what you wrote is your dog sleeping a lot. Ours had normal energy even when injured. Hope he is not in a lot of pain, is his appetite normal? At least tomorrow you know he'll be in good hands and you won't need to worry.

2 year old GSD
Dont know if anyone can help me, i have a 2 year old german shepherd whos done something to his back leg recently. he wont lean on it and limps when he walks, hes not being his normal self, laying about and sleeping alot, dont know if hes trying to rest his leg or something else is wrong? Ive been looking round the leg, stretching it and he doesnt seem to react to whatever i touch or pull? ive looked through his pads and theres no cuts or anything in them. we've booked to take him to the vets tomorrow, but thought id ask for any advice if anyone knows of what it could be.
Hope someone can help!
