Small Dog favors hind leg off and on, + yelp
Our small morkie is 2 years old, loves to be active, and was playing a few days ago and was jumping up the side of the bed to reach her rope toy, and there was a plastic cup on the ground. Her hind leg hit the cup, and she yelped, favored the leg, and lifted it off the ground , and then was fine 10 min later. Next day, she was trying to jump off things, and reaggrivated whatever it was, yelped, favored it, and then was fine a few minutes later. Tonight my wife tells me she was running really hard trying to play with another dog, and did something to reaggrivate it again, and yelped again, but longer for 10 seconds or so, then layed down with her, and was fine 20 minutes later. Is this a sprain she is probably reaggrivating or should I make an appointment to see a vet? Or should I try to keep her inactive for a few days to see if it gets better from the sprain possibility?
