    Default Phoebe is limping.

    I was walking Phoebe today She stopped to lick her foot and has been limping since. There is no sign of a thorn on her paw and her dew claw seems fine. IS it vet time?

    Get a bowl of warm water and dip her paw in to it. Hold it there for a little while just in case something tiny has lodged between the pads. Gently check in between the pads .

    Hope it is better tomorrow.

    A couple of days ago Oliver started limping badly. Turned out it was a small, hard lump of mud deep between his pads. As Claire said, bathing in warm water can often dissolve it, followed by a little rest to get over the soreness. Grass seeds can get deep between the pads at this time of year as well.

    Oz also did this a few weeks ago. Never found any reason for his limping. He also didn't jump as much. I just monitored it, didn't go for walks, and after two days he was fine. I'm thinking he must have pulled something and he knew he just needed some rest.
