• My great pyrenees puppy is 5 months old and he has suddenly started limping. I didnt see him injure anything, but he isnt putting weight on his back foot. I dont see anything that would be causing this and only the pad of his foot appears to be sensitive. Is this common for great pyrenees puppies?

    Hi Katie,
    Although it is common for puppies to hurt themselves of have other complications that can make them limp, none of them are normal and all of them should be checked out. It may not be anything serious, but if he is limping, there are a number of issues that can get worse with time if they aren’t treated. Please bring him in to the veterinarian and be prepared to have some radiographs done to evaluate what might be going on.
