    hi my 10month old dogue de bordeaux cross nepolitan mastiff has been limping on and off for nearly a week and its always seemed to be limping in the house and nothing outside well today she wont walk on her front paw and is crying and sometimes yelping over the time she has been limping i have been feeling up and down her leg and she shows no sign of discomfort but today i felt her leg and nothing but got to her foot and looked between her pads and the one she started crying when i moved it is it something that will go or does she need a vet?
    ive read on lots of websites through the week and they all say that it could be bruised etc and will get better on its own

    i just want her to get better :(

    If it's gone on this long and is getting worse, I would pop to the vet.
    For a dog to cry, it must be in considerable pain

    best see ur vet.
    these big boned breeds are predisposed to joint problems...so u r better to check and hopefully discount this.
    Am guessing as she is a x the parents may not be hip or elbow scored:(
    If the are u might be able to research and see if their is any problems within these lines.

    I would go to the vets, with limping if it doesnt wear off within a few days, a sprain or muscle strain can be ruled out, if hes crying too id think it could be something more serious - its worth catching it early and finding out what it is :)

    like everyone else said I think you ned to go to the vets to get it checked that way you can get it sorted and some pain relief for him. A dog has to be in alot of pain to cry.
