Dog limps after waking up

I have a 5 month old labrador retriever and his leg seems to have a slight limp from time to time. It never hurts and he walks fine. But he limps a little when he runs and we notice that he seems a bit out of it on occasion. Is this something to be concerned about? His vet has looked at him and says that it is most likely nothing to worry about.

When I say limp I mean sort of a half skip like it is only half a leg that is limping. And he gets up but can't really walk very well but he isn't falling down.

I don't know if this is a common thing or just me and my dogs, but I haven't seen anything like this before.

So your lab's leg seems to be giving you a little bit of trouble? Is he limping often? Have you tried putting some medicine in his feet or on the leg for it? That might be something to try.

But if he can walk fine with his leg then I wouldn't worry about it. I'd just be paying attention to it for a bit to see how it goes and make sure it's not getting worse.

I wouldnt be concerned about it at all. it's perfectly normal for a dog's leg to have a limp. It wouldnt affect his walking ability though. There are a couple of conditions though that can cause limp-like symptoms that might be what you are seeing but there are other reasons as well. If you are seeing any problems with his leg, have the vet check him.

There is no need for your vet to concern themselves with it. It's perfectly normal. You should not notice any problems with his leg though, unless you do actually see a limp.

So what is going on? We know that it is not a broken leg (you would have sd that) because you have sd that he walks fine and doesn't have any pn in his leg. I think your other dog is a Lab though? So he is older than your pup? Is that right?

But regardless, it is perfectly normal for your pup to limp. It can be pnful though if it is in a bad spot for a dog, but it is perfectly normal for him to limp. There is no real reason for your vet to concern themselves with it. If it continues, you may need to have it checked out at a vet. But don't worry too much about it, it is perfectly normal for a dog to limp a bit and your pup is young.

So there is no way to tell if it is anything other than normal? No pn, no issues, just a slight limp?

He only just got his vaccination for heartworms recently (he had a heartworm test at the vet 3 weeks ago and was deemed to be negative), and his blood work was also just done. So it's been 2 weeks since the blood tests. If it continues, I will have the blood work done agn as well as having a vet check him.

I think there was a similar question on this topic some time ago. My guess is that his leg is slightly out of joint, which has caused the leg to be a bit stiff, thus causing the limp. It's quite common for dogs to have some stiffness in the joints after a vaccination, especially those who don't like needles.

I would recommend you have your pup seen by a vet if the limp is still ongoing. I would also take a few photos to show the condition of his leg, to show it in real life. That way, if it does need to be seen by a vet, you can show them exactly what the issue is.

It is normal for puppies to limp and when it gets worse, it would be an issue. The vet will be able to tell if there is something going on. When he is on his feet and the limp is obvious, you can take it to the vet. Your vet should be able to put him on a scale, and you can ask to see his foot weight and foot length.

He may even be able to feel where the limp is more. If you can take a photo, you can show it to a vet, who will be able to help.

I agree that if it seems he has not recovered, then a vet visit is in order.

It will be difficult to see from the photo, but I think that the right hind leg is longer than the left. That makes sense given the limp, but it is impossible to tell from a photo. A vet would be able to measure the length of both feet and tell for sure.

If your vet is concerned about his health, they can treat his leg infection with antibiotics and/or they can clean out his leg wound and apply something to keep it clean.

Thanks, everyone. I did take a picture and will be sending it along. The vet will definitely be able to see the limp as I'm sure I can't miss it! (I also do have a really good eye for things I should be looking out for. )

The vet is correct. There is a lot that can be done to help but you need to rule out and correct the problem to make it as short a time as possible.

The first thing to do would be to get the leg checked by a vet to make sure there is no swelling or bone breakage present and to take a detled look to see if there is any damage or infection of the leg. Most pets will be able to tell you if anything is wrong just by looking at the leg. If you can, get a picture of his leg.

If you take the time to get a picture, or even just tell the vet that he is limping and it is making it difficult for him to walk, you will save yourself a lot of money and stress.
