Causes Of Limping In Front Leg

by Tim
(Ft. Wayne, IN)

I am trying to figure out what could be wrong with my Aussie's front right leg. She is 6 y/o and has been in excellent health so I am probably blowing this out of proportion. I took her out to play ball and run around for a while. She showed no sign of injury while fetching and wasn't until later that night that she started to limp. This morning she would not put any pressure on it but when I went to check it out she didn't flinch with pain. There is no sign of swelling and nothing abnormal when I compared it to her left leg. I asked an online vet and he said to give her 1 aspirin every 12 hours. After about an hour of that being in her system, she started putting some weight on it. I wanted to see if anyone on here has experienced something similar or maybe has a better idea of what it could be.

yes, our older girl has done that several times through the years. sometimes it just last a day, and then she's fine. my husband thinks, like people, sometimes they could pull a muscle or something like that. if it last more than a few days, or gets worst, then if you want, take her to the vet, but otherwise, just wait and watch. I know its odd, but it happens.
