My dog started limping...

by Ellie
(Darien, IL)

We have 5 year miniature schnauzer. She is very healthy and very active dog. We noticed in last week that sometimes she won't put any weight on her back right leg after she starts walking after rest. After few steps she is fine again and does her daily walks and running around the house with no limping. She eats and drinks like always. Should we take her to vet immediately or wait a few days?

I would wait

I think I would wait a few more days to see if it is just a pulled muscle and take it easy on walks. Check if it hurts or is swollen when you touch it. If so I wouldn't wait so long. Max pulls muscles and limps occasionally.
