Hi all, this is my first post.
I purchased a dobermann puppy and he came home last weekend at 8 weeks of age. He loves to run around the yard and get into any mischief possible.
After playing in the yard for a while today I noticed he was a little lame in his left from leg. I checked all over the leg and it didn't bother him at all. He kept running around and the lameness soon spread to his right leg. Once again I checked both legs over and no signs of any pain.
I immediately stopped him from running and put him back in his pen, I tried to ice his legs but there was no chance of that.
After he has woken up from his nap his right leg appears to be fine and only a slightly noticable limp in the left.
I'm assuming its just the growing pains of a large breed dog, or could it be something more? Should I get him to a vet, or leave it a few days to see how he is?
Any advice would be welcomed.
