Customer Question

my dog is limping on his right back leg. I've checked his pads, his toes and he doesn't respond as if there is any pain, so i carefully stretched his leg up,down, back and forth and he still does not respond as if anything is wrong, yet he won't put alot of pressure on that leg, what can i do to help him w/out running to the er and spending alot of money only to find out there is nothing really wrong w/him?
