    if it is her front leg feel around all the joints and bones and see if she lets you do it. if she doesn't stop you, it's probably not a broken bone or fracture, which means she doesn't need x-rays. if it's a muscle thing, the only thing that cures it is rest. this happened to ollie, he didn't rest, and it went away.

    hey Meg.... Banks has HD.... was found when she was about 10-12 months. she has had a great life and it has never stopped her from doing anything. She limps here and there, but I just keep Deramaxx in the house and give her a pill as needed.

    +1 to what @2BullyMama said..

    Get her checked out. Its sooo much better to find out early. My A
    ussie Cattle dog lived to the ripe old age of 13 with horrible hip and leg issues (HD, torn acl as a puppy that was never fixed, hip damage caused by a car, broken leg never properly set.. all happened before i adopted him).

    If you find out now.. the right mix of supplements and medicine can keep her good as new!

    On a side note.. that same dog would 'fake' limp to get out of doing things he didn't want to do. Maybe if he didn't use his front leg to fake being hurt we would have gotten away with it more .
