    Woke up limping?

    Mick woke up limping on his right rear leg.He is holding it up and seems to not be in much if any pain.I can touch him and he shows no sign of pain,but the limp is pretty obvious.I checked his paws/pads,leg,hip and belly and I cannot see anything amiss.He went to sleep last night 100% fine,and I didn't hear him yelp,cry,whine or anything in the night.
    Since he is not in pain,we are going to take him in on his scheduled vet appointment early this week,unless he gets worse.But it still has me wondering how he did it?

    What could have caused such a limp,no yelping,no pain,just holding a leg up???

    When Foxy blew out her acl slipping on the tiled from doors, she never made a sound either. Sometimes pain tolerance in these dogs is not a good thing! Best get it checked out and hopefully your pup has just strained his leg and it stiffened up while he was sleeping and is very uncomfortable right now. When is the appt you have?

    ah ha! we found it.Something is wrong with the pad.Looks like something imbedded in the interior portion of his pad in between his toes-way up in there.I could not get out what was imbedded,so I cleaned it up,used some ointment and then put a bootie on it to soften the area up and draw out whats in there.With the padding on his foot/bootie he's walking on it.
