When pet owners notice their furry friend limping, it can be alarming.

An injury or physical deformity is typically the source of a limp, but it isn’t necessarily an indication of discomfort. Age, weight, and breed are all factors that may have an impact on your pet’s walk. If you discover your pet has developed a limp, contact us. We offer pet orthopedics in Pembroke Pines and the surrounding areas.

Lameness in Pets

Lameness is a complicated problem that may seem to come and go. Lameness can affect one or more legs, be constant or intermittent, and even get better or worse at specific times of the day. There are a few common signs that your pet may have an orthopedic issue:


Refusal to place weight on a leg

Signs of pain or discomfort in a leg

Not placing a paw on the ground correctly

Swelling around the joints

Loss of muscular tissue in one leg

Difficulty climbing stairs or jumping

Other changes to their gait

Inability to walk or run normally

It’s important to determine whether the problem your pet is experiencing is typical of their breed or whether a more serious underlying health concern is present. Some breeds are more prone to orthopedic problems than others and certain treatments may slow the onset of orthopedic issues. Common causes of a limp include:



Bone cancer

Wounds to paw pads

Trauma, such as a broken bone or dislocation


Nerve damage

Inflammatory diseases

Congenital abnormalities


Insect stings

Genetic disorders

Damaged or broken claws

It’s sad to consider that your pet may be hurt. Our goal is to identify the underlying reason for your pet’s limp and then recommend the best course of action to reduce any discomfort your pet may be feeling and restore their ability to walk normally.
