A dog’s mobility is extremely important to their entire life, and any issues that hinder their movement can have a a noticeable effect on their behavior and attitude.
Limping is one of the most common problems that dog owners face, and it is challenging because your dog cannot tell you where or why they are in pain.
If you notice your dog limping, examine their limbs and see if there is any apparent problem that may be causing discomfort or pain. However, this is not always apparent so a visit to the veterinarian may be necessary.
There are a lot of different parts of your dog’s anatomy that can be affected. Hurt toes, like broken or cracked toenails are common, as is hurt webbing between the toes. There are a variety of other causes, such as sore joints, or even bruised or broken bones.
