My dog Ginger (1.5 yr. Chihuahua mix) just started favoring her back left paw, licking and kicking it(like a spasm).

I have cleaned and examined it, as well as massaged her leg and paw. I see no bite or infection, so I was wondering if anyone knew what this was?

Any dog showing a type of dominance towards a paw should be looked at. Keep checking- thoroughly- is there a splinter or a burr? I have known healthy dogs that came up lame one day, and their lives have never been the same. Make sure she does not have fleas or a muscle pull either. Any other possibility should be monitored and looked at by a vet, the sooner the better (better safe than sorry). Good luck!! ^_^
