Puppy limping

Hello-I have a 6 month old German Shephard/lab mix puppy. He started limping on his front leg last week. I took him to the vet who gave him a physical exam and checked his legs, paws, shoulder etc and said he didn't feel any inflammation or swelling , nothing was out of place. He walks on it, will run, dig, jumps, etc, doesn't hold it up, if I feel any part of it he doesn't pull away or cry. He will limp sometimes and sometimes looks fine. am at a loss as to what it can be and if I should worry. Please help.

There are so many things it could be, from growing pains, or other minor problems that will self-resolve, to more serious issues that may require intervention. There is no way, we can know what is going on with him, but since your Vet could find no inflammation, and if he improves, its probably nothing to worry about. If on the other hand, he continues to limp, and still your Vet finds nothing, its probably time for a referral to a specialist. If there is a problem, you need information to make decisions about his treatment.

Dogs are the type of humans. Sometimes it happens to a dog with their nerves and veins of their legs. But can easily get through it by working logically with your dog. It takes time, but you can see results. some logical reasons you can get here
