If after watching my video and you have done what I have recommended to locate the source of the lameness, then you probably will need to seek professional help to further diagnose this intermittent lameness.

I have a 6 month old puppy and she recently started limping randomly. It is her back right leg that is bothering her, but we cant seem to find the problem. She was getting better but when I took her out she ran in the yard and yelped and started limping worse. She is now just laying on the couch, but what should we do??

Zoorium says:

hi, how long has she been displaying this sign? With rear leg, the common problems are muscular strain of the thigh/hip, hip dysplasia, cruciate ligament tear (knee) or patella luxation. However you mentioned there are some feedback when you stretch her leg to the rear? This may suggest a muscular hip/thigh strain or hip dysplasia. However I cannot be sure as I am not performing the examination myself. I will strongly advise you to visit your local vet to have him/her check out your pet.

I have a 4yr old beagle (35Lbs) which she is limping on her rt rear leg. Also when standing, she is tippy toeing. I did the test you have showned. The only thing i noticed when i hyper extend her leg to the rear, i could feel her tensing up.. What are some of the symptoms could this be? When feeding time, she gets excited and jumps in the air constantly until she is given her food.

Zoorium says:
