Q. MY DOG HURT HIS HIND LEG. HE'S AROUND 6 MO OLD, AND HE'S NEVER BEEN HURT IN HIS LIFE. HE SQUALS WHEN I PICK HIM UP, BUT HE MAKES HIS WAY AROUND THE HO
A. He could have pulled a muscle or something much more serious like a fracture. If he is putting weight on it and walking ok, you should restrict his movement so he doesn't further injure it and allow it to rest. If it gets worse, or he isn't using it at all you should take him to a vet immediately. Dogs are good at hiding pain so if he is yelling, it is painful. You should make an appointment with a vet to have it checked out and maybe get some pain medication.
