Daisy is 9 weeks old, she is a standard puppy weighs 12 lbs. She was playing in the house with my 15lbs miniature 7 year old and all of a sudden I heard her yelp and crying and she is limping. They were in the hall and she does not get on furniture so it is not that she jumped. She walks a few steps and lays down, she is now sleeping on my bed. I really thought it was her front paw, but when I picked her up she yelped again and now I think it is the back leg. It is 6:30 pm, her vet is closed and she is sleeping,,, should I take her to he emergency vet or if I keep her still do you think I can wait for the morning to take her to her regular vet. If she does not limp again, do I not worry or should she still be checked out. She went to the vet last week when I got her and the vet said knees and patellas were fine.

What do you guys suggest.... thank you

Thanks to all of you. She is in her crate, she is great when it comes to the crate. I did call the emergency vet and they said that if she was limping but still putting weight on the leg then it could wait for her vet. If she was not putting weight on one of her legs then it would have been a sign of a fracture. They also said that if she was panting a lot, then that meant she was in pain and all they would do would be to give her pain medication. Of course, the pain medication would be after doing an x-ray and some other tests which would be extra of the $95 just to see her, and to expect a wait of 2 to 3 hours.
This happened at 5:30pm she is not walking with the same gait, but I really cannot tell which of her legs is bothering her. She ate her dinner standing, weight on all 4's and she is taking it very easy but is not panting and does not seem to be in pain.

I will take her to her vet tomorrow, just in case since she is so young. I will give you the update once I get back.
