NancyJ I would think rest him or a day or two and if it is not better go to the vet

Sarah~ This is how he holds his paw when he sits

Sarah~ Ok read the articles in the other thread... it fits his symptoms but when I squeeze his leg, he doesn't react at all. I didn't want to squeeze very hard but I put pressure on his leg from shoulder to paw and he just laid there. He also has no problems getting up and moving, its just a very slight limp and when he sits or stands for a period of time, he puts less weight on that leg.

Nigel If it is pano, there is another active top thread with some advice on dealing with it.

Sarah~ I suspect pano, or he pulled something, and from what I have read it will go away over time, and he does seem to be doing better today. My roommates came home from New Year's parties this morning and have all said that he doesn't seem to be in any pain from what they can see. He even jumped all over them when they walked in the door today.

Sarah~ No cuts or splinters that I've been able to see, I checked between his toes and his pads.

Nigel What about a splinter or cut?

Loneforce I think the only way to make sure what is up, is getting an xray at the vet.

Sarah~ I just took a picture of his legs, the one that's bothering him is the right front paw, the one on top in this photo
