My 8.5 week old English bulldog male starting limping today out of no where. It started as a minor limp and through the day has gotten progressively worse. I examined the paw and found a very minor what looked to be cut on the pad of his paw. Ever since he started limping all he has wanted to do is sleep. We've had to force feed him. But he drinks on his own. His breathing is also very fast while he's sleeping. I just need possible outcomes of what the seriousness of this is or whether it will just heal on it's own.
Serious! It doesn't sound good at all. It could b very infected and his breathing could b from the pain he's n or b because his body if fight really hard to get rid of the infection. If it's infection it doesn't sound like he's winning. Please take him n. It could also b something more then just a cut. Hopefully nothings n it and it's not broke anywhere. There r places that will let u make payments. I've had cats and dogs my entire life. I've also worked at a boarding kennel. Like I said doesn't sound good please take him n to a vet.
We ended up taking him in. After an hour the vet said everything looked normal and nothing was broken. He gave us pain medication and by the time we got home he started eating and trying to run. Vet said he was just too concentrated on the pain to do anything else but sleep and make it heal. Scary moment but should heal in a week or less thank you for your help!
Your welcome! I'm so glad to hear him n pain was the worst of it all. Glad u took him n to b sure. Some ppl wait and end up waiting too long and it's too late. With some things waiting just a few hours ends up being too long. Big hugs to your pup.
