Why is my dog limping on and off?

Dog limping could be caused by anything in the leg – tendon, ligament, joint, bone or muscle. Reasons can vary from harmful to threatening. For instance, it can be caused by sprains, inflammation of the muscle or tendon, nerve injury, injury to the foot or bone diseases. As well as degenerative diseases like arthritis. In fact, your dog can be limping on and off due to the nail problems.

You should check how severe is the limping. If it doesn’t stop after some time – you should take your dog to a veterinarian. Continuous limping can cause arthritis development since muscles get weaker and more pressure is put onto the joint.
