Why is my dog limping and licking her paw?

Post by Guest »

My pup started limping two days ago and licking the bottom of his paw. Clearly something is wrong or hurt but I can’t see anything. Touching and squeezing doesn’t illicit any response but he’s had a broken leg before (years ago) and didn’t react to pain then either.

He’ll still run and jump when he’s excited but it’s clearly bothering him.

Is there any way I can try and self diagnose a bit to determine if it’s something we should wait out or if we need to go to the vet? Eating and drinking fine, same disposition.

Just an irritated paw.

Could be arthritis from the previous injury or a foreign body in the paw. Best thing is to see a vet

Do his claws all seem OK? My dog cracked a claw once and made out like she broke her leg.. mines a drama queen but I’m guessing it can cause some discomfort.
