Hello
My 5 month old moyen poodle is limping.
Yesterday he had a playdate and today we went to the park . He didn’t have any problem there .
We came back home today and after 2 hours suddenly he starts limping ( right front leg) , no pain ! I checked all his paw & brushed them but all is ok . Any idea what could be ? Do I have to bring him to the vet asap and ask for xry ?

thank you

Is he otherwise OK? Eating, drinking, not unhappy? No squeaks or pulling away if you handle and gently manipulate the limb? If all is well other than a slight limp it sounds like a slight strain - I would keep him from bouncing, jumping and climbing stairs and see how he is in 24 hours before considering a vet appointment. If he seems to be in pain I would call the vet to ask about pain relief, but a bit of soreness is nature's way of telling the body to slow down and let things heal.

Check the paw carefully. A small thorn or something might have pierced the skin on that paw.

FJM gives good advice above. It's hard to say from reading a description online, but it could just be growing pains. Give him plenty of rest - no running or jumping, but short walks are fine - and see how he feels after a day.

I would have his patellas checked at his next vet appointment. If it happens again, I would make an appointment.

How's puppy?

Basil's always bounced back right away and been pretty resilient after she run has yelped after running into a cement wall with her shoulder.

Sometimes they are like kids on a playground and sometimes boo boos happen when playing. It's not like they're graceful and elegant puppies 100% of the time (Sometimes the opposite).

I took Buck to the vet when he had a limp around that age. Nothing was broken , just a sprain. He got some anti inflammatory meds and was on restricted activity for 10 days. You may not need to take your pup to the vet, but definitely put him on a program of no jumping, running for at least a week.
