Lameness in dogs

It’s always a concern when you spot your dog limping or hopping on one foot but it's very common for dogs to be lame at some point in their lives. They may have a strain or sprain or possibly something stuck in their foot. Most times the lameness will just get better very quickly, but sometimes it can be more serious or last longer and your dog will need to see a veterinarian.
