|kobe's almost a year old now and he's had his share of bumps and bruises, but this time he seems to have done something worth getting looked at. i first noticed he was limping a bit over the weekend and by sunday, a limp was definitely there. now, he's had limps before, but they normally are slight and don't last for long. it's wed now and he still has a definite limp on his front left leg.
i've poked, prodded, looked at, and gently pulled his leg in every direction i can think of and he doesn't react other than simply wanting me to let him go. i know that doesn't necessarily mean much, some dogs don't show pain...his paw pads look fine, so do his claws, no swelling i can see...etc.
he's basically on bed rest right now. i've restricted him to either his crate or just my bedroom. no dog park. no walks, except for the short one i took him on yesterday just to get him out and moving.
question is: how long do i wait before i bring him to the vet?
