Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. I wouldn't recommend putting an Ace bandage around the leg. There is a risk of cutting off circulation. Plus, it most likely isn't his paw that is bothering him. Chances are that it is his elbow, shoulder or neck. The best thing to do is give him some rest for a few days. No heavy playing, long walks or running around like he was doing. If the limping is getting worse at any time or not better in 5 days, I would have your vet check him out. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
