• Hi my dog has been limping for a day we have check couple of time and it feels normal. She is not in pain, any ideas what could be causing the limping?

    Hi Gerard,
    If the limping has continued, I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. Limping is a sign of pain and can have many underlying causes. These include an injury, arthritis, infection, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the limping after they have examined her. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain causes for the limping. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of her lameness.
