yeah thats what i mean turn it upside down or so the paw pads are facing up
it is hard to describe
i am glad he is now seeming okay but definitely watch him
if it happens again i would see about getting him in to the vet sooner possibly

if you take the puppy and turn the foot he was dragging over
does he fix it or does he leave it in the turned position?
you want to be real careful with this as if there is nerve involvement going on you could see a lifelong disability or something they need to do surgery on

Freaking out - 15 weeks and injury(?) with foot drag
Tonight my 15 week GSD was playing in our sun room while I was cooking dinner. Suddenly he headed back to the kitchen, yelping loudly and dragging the top of one of his hind feet (knuckling?) with every step. This went on for (what seemed like an eternity) maybe 30-60 seconds. I put him into his crate in the same room and prepared for a trip to the emergency vet clinic. When I let him out of the crate, he was not overly exuberant, but he didn't seem to be crying, limping, or dragging his foot anymore. In fact, he seems to be full weight-bearing again. When I look back, though, he has always tended to nip at the hip/leg on that side, and our trainer mentioned that she wondered if his leg was bothering him on that side b/c he cries when reaches to scratch that ear. So far, vet has said he's fine (no diagnostic imaging or anything yet, and the vet has watched his ears carefully b/c I thought the yelping was related to his ears). We have an appointment next week at the vet - is there anything in particular I should be asking or requesting?
