Limping Yorkie :(
Yesterday i took Milo for a walk he was fine and dandy. When i left the house for not even 20 min, I came back he was limping. Its his right paw that seems to be bothering him. I checked his paws and even stretched out his leg and he gives me no sign of pain. SO i figured his leg might of fell asleep. Well i checked on him again 20 min later and same thing. Well this morning he was still limping but when i went to leave for work he ran out and was on all 4 legs all fine and dandy. When my BF got home earlier today he said that Milo is still limping. Should i have him seen, does anyone know what could be the cause or is he just playing tricks on us.
Thank you every one

You will probably have to go to vet.
Dinky had a similar episode. He a had a luxating patella that we had been keeping our eyes on for years. One day he tore a ligament. We did not know that and kept him off his feet for a few days. Suddenly, he seemed better, but was from getting rest. It became clear soon that he still had a problem.
So it could be that your dog seems to recover, but does not really. As I said, you will probably need to go to vet. .. the dog could very well be in a lot of pain.

If my dog was limping for 24 hours I would sitting in my vets office. Please take your baby to your vet, better safe than sorry.

Like us, they sometimes do some odd thing to a limb...and it's sore for 24 hrs or so, but no real damage is done to anything. For me, I always watch closely to see how bad the limp is, how often, is it intermittent or constant etcetera...and make a judgment call as to when to head to the vet. Did you inspect the claws too and btwn the pads...?

When Zoey was a puppy, there was a time when she'd lift left paw from time to time. When inspected her leg/paw, I didn't get any reaction. The lifting was on/off. After couple hours, checked again but this time, I decided to inspect her pads more thoroughly. Like in between her toes/pads. Found a freak'n big thorn that was stuck in there. Thankfully, no damage done.

Check pads, and in between pads, toes. Waffles did that and had a foxtail between toes.
