If your pet begins limping out of the blue, it’s completely reasonable to become concerned.

Lameness can start as a result of a birth defect or develop over time after an injury. Your pet’s orthopedic health may be impacted by their age, weight, and breed. To ensure that your pet isn’t in pain while living their life, Boca Raton Animal Medical Center offers pet orthopedics in Boca Raton.

Lameness in Pets

Your pet might not always limp, as you may have noticed. Lameness is highly dependent on a number of variables and can cause the limp to be sporadic or connected to rest or activity periods. It might be a good idea to seek veterinary guidance if your pet’s limping continues and is not an isolated occurrence. Some signs that your pet has an orthopedic issue may include:


Swelling around the joints

Not placing a paw on the ground correctly

Refusal to place weight on a leg

Inability to walk or run normally

Loss of muscular tissue in one leg

Other changes to their gait

Signs of pain or discomfort in a leg

Difficulty climbing stairs or jumping

It’s crucial to understand whether orthopedic problems are frequently diagnosed in your pet’s breed or whether your pet has a condition that isn’t clear. Common causes of lameness include:



Bone cancer

Wounds to paw pads

Trauma, such as a broken bone or dislocation


Insect stings

Nerve damage

Congenital abnormalities


Genetic disorders

Inflammatory diseases

Damaged or broken claws

It’s frightening for pet owners to realize their animal might be injured. Your pet will undergo a thorough examination by us to identify any potential causes of their limp and we’ll offer suggestions to help them feel better as soon as possible.
