Customer Question

My beagle appears to have a front paw injury She seems unable to put weight on it to stand but once in a standing position, is able to walk.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No wound that we can see and no swelling either
JA: What is the beagle's name and age?
Customer: Grace and she is 9
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Grace?
Customer: She is overweight but was that way when we got her at the Humane Society. She tore the connecting band in both rear legs a couple of years ago but taught herself to walk again. She is motivated by food.

Does it seem to be painful to her when you touch it?

If you look at the underside, is there any damage to the pads, or anything stuck between the toes?

Has she been walking anywhere that she may have stepped on something?

Is she otherwise acting normally?

Has she only been doing this today?
