How to Help a Dog With a Limp?
Start with a paw check.
Look for debris stuck between the pads, such as twigs, cuts, broken nails, blood, or signs of a sting. Remove any apparent culprits like twigs and soothe the paw pads with Apipet balm in case of frostbites, burns, or cuts.
Then check the limbs for swelling or any obvious signs of fractured legs. Call your vet to advise you on how to reduce swelling with ice packs.
Many dogs are vocal about their pain. Whimpering and crying will tell you it's time to go to a vet.
Pay attention to overall differences in your pup's behaviour as well — such as a suddenly aggressive, trembling, or fearful dog.
Moreover, limping that lasts more than a few minutes is a cause for concern — get in touch with your vet even if you haven't discovered anything after examining limbs and paws.
