Why is my dog limping?

Hi all! Wondering if anyone else has dealt with this... About 3 wks ago, our pup Cookie started limping (front left paw) after a trip to the dog park. We tried to limit her activity for 2 weeks to see if that would help. She has full range of motion, checked all parts of her leg (in between toes, paw pad, nails, joints, etc) and nothing is sensitive to the touch. She seemed to be limping less, so we went for a short walk, but the limp came back more noticeably again. She limps more in the morning (hard to think it could be arthritis bc she is only 1), but still bears weight on her leg. We took her to the vet and she didn't seem concerned and just said to limit activity. Any suggestions?

I would call the vet and let them know she's still limping after 2 weeks restriction, and see where they want to go from here. Restriction is pretty much standard issue for any sort of lameness, but given that it's persisting, they may recommend x rays at this point, if not, you could always ask if they feel they're warranted yet. There are so many things that can cause limping, and it's hard to keep a young dog inactive, I don't envy you! Hope they're able to find the cause soon
