My poor little one year old Pit mix pup has been limping on her front paw for the past couple of days. We thought that it was a sore on her paw, but the sore is starting to look better & the limp is not. We've been trying to keep her from running around, but she's a very active dog. We usually go for a jog in the morning & a walk in the evening. And in between she's running around in the back yard all day when the weather is alright. It's very difficult to keep her still all day! We haven't taken her for walks, but she runs around the house when she hears any noise outside. Being that she's able to run w/out showing any pain, I'm hoping it's not too serious. I just don't want to take her to the vet for them to charge us an arm & a leg just so they can tell us to have her rest.
Anyone have any expierience w/this? Any suggestions on how to keep her from running around so much for a few days so it can heal? If it's some kind of sprain or fracture in her bone, what could a vet do anyway?
