    Exclamation 9 month old female limping

    We have a 9 month old female great pyreeness. She weighs around 92lbs right now. For the last week she has been limping and has been careful with her front left paw. I have checked for thorns or cuts and checked her entire leg. We do have a tall bed (bedrooms are upstairs...so she's limping up and down thoes) that she will jump on/off of from a bench. She isn't eating as much as normal. She is a inside dog but has been hanging out side more then normal. Keep in mind if we (my son bf or myself) go any where in the house she HAS to follow...it's like we're her livestock we tease....well she's not following as much as normal Im guessing cause her foot. I saw online that some times puppys (large breeds) get growing pains...and she has grown fast so not sure if that is it or what. Any advice or info would be great. Thank you

    She's not acting like herself at all. Almost depressed

    While the so called growing pains occur in some pups, you should take your pup to the vet because this may or may not be growing pains. If it were me, I'd make an appointment with the vet ASAP because I don't see a reason that the pup should just suffer through pain for days.

    Ditto. I would take that dog to the vet ASAP.

    Update on Boston:
    We took her to the vet. They felt her leg and took x-rays. Her leg above to elbow is the issue. The vet said her bone is less dense. Her x-rays showed something off. They have now sent the x-rays to a specialist. Any ideas???? Im worried sick

    Sorry to hear that there may be something off with your puppy. I don't think though that it is a good idea to speculate what it might be. You can very well end up scaring yourself if you start looking for what could be wrong. Take a deep breath and just make sure she is kept comfortable while you wait for answers. She's still very young so there is good reason to believe that whatever the cause of the pain, it can be addressed and pain alleviated. Stay strong!!
