    I guess if it were me I would keep him quiet for a few days because he could have sprained it. If it doesn't get better in a few days I would make a trip to the vet. Use only a leash to walk him and not rough housing for a few days. If he is crying and in pain I would go immediately to the vet. Good luck with him!

    Poor baby!! I think if it has been a week, you should see a vet. Just to make sure all is ok. I know that times are hard economically, but it is best to have him check now.

    If you have seen NO improvement in a week, and you've attempted to keep him quiet then it is probably time to take him to the vet just to get it checked out.

    Jorge..I am sorry to hear Chunky is hurting! I agree with the above advice. If you haven't kept him quiet and not allowed playing,etc, I suppose you could try that for a few days. But if he is in obvious distress,like crying out, etc..please take him to his vet. Good Luck!

    Have you checked between his toes for any foreign objects? Or maybe check for interdigital cysts between the toes. Has he been licking that paw?

    Yes I have check the paws and he has nothing, he doesn't leak his paw either, he plays like a regular puppy he acts like nothing happens but it's really clear that he walks with his front foot different, is like he has no power on his foot like he does on the other one, everything is ok with him but he just don't walk like he use to to walk is like he hurt himself playing but time has pass and he walks like that, well if he hurt himself playing I don't know how to maintain him calm so he can get better because all he does is eat sleep and play and he plays so agresive that there is no way his foot is going to get better if he doesnt calm down for a while.

    Jorge..do you till have a crate for him? How I would keep him calm is letting him be in his crate most of the time, except for potty and feeding. You do this for a few days and see if he is better. He will be forced to be calm. I know it's not easy but sometimes raising these guys is HARD!

    Yes, he needs to be crated. If you don't do it , it could get worse and then he won't be able to walk at all. Believe me I know how hard it is to keep a puppy calm. Give him lots of toys to play with in the crate. Hope your baby feels better.

    Bubba has done this a few times. Limps when he is jogging...never slowed him down or stopped him from acting like a wild banshee! I think he probably sprained something or caught his toenail on something. I'm not saying that's what happened to ur guy but Bubba has demonstrated the same thing before. I couldn't imagine keeping him in a crate and quiet for a few days...but it prob would have been better.

    Is he just walking funny or limping (not wanting to put weight on it) ? I have read that 'any sudden limping of a dog is most likely a torn CCL (like our ACL)). Apparently bulldogs are prone to this. Many vets will suggest a $3000 surgery (called TPLO); Its are VERY lucrative surgery that othopedic vets are making a fortune on. The best approach is to take to the vet just to get a diagnosis; but if the vet mentions he has a torn CCL and brings up the TPLO surgery; RUN do not walk out of there... wait 8 weeks minimum to allow it to heal itself. Hopefully its just a sprain...
