• We picked up our dog yesterday from her doggie daycare where she was boarded over the holidays. We noticed today she has a slight limp on her front right leg. She is still able to jump on the bed and couch. We contacted our daycare facility and they didn't notice any limp. Is this something we should keep an eye on for a few days or taking her to the vet directly?

    Hi Analisa,
    If the limp is still present today I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. Limping is a sign of pain and even with her only slightly favoring the leg there could be something going on that needs treatment. Your vet can talk to you about the cause of the limping and the treatment she needs after they have examined her.
