our dog was jumping around and jumped from a chair to the floor, I then notice that his was limping alittle while he was walking around.......he is only 6 months old but very active any hlep? what can we do? he is on meds for his leg.... but still very active....we also have two older pugs he loves to play with but now he has to take it easy.......... thank you
EB's are famous for problems with their hips and hind legs. I have been owned by one for 11 years now and we used to raise them.
He is very young to already be on meds for his legs. In a case like this, you may have to keep him in his crate until you can get him to the vet to be checked. It's difficult, especially with a puppy but they need to be still and crated when they are having difficulties.
Sorry, I'm of no help really but you just have to do all you can to keep him still for now. I would get the vet visit ASAP.
Best of luck!

just keep the dog quite settle him down and give him his meds. don't let him run around too much, as long as he is eating and going out......rest is the best at this point. how old is he and is he very active?
If he is having problems, you have to keep him crated. You are the parent, he doesn't have to like it. If your child wanted to jump off a roof, would you let him just becuase he wanted to? Teach him not to jump on the furniture. it is possible to do, so is not allowing him to re-injure his leg.
I had to keep an Aussie pup with a broken leg crated, it wasn't easy or fun, but I had to do it. You have to consider what is best for the dog. If he continues to injure the leg, and requires surgery later, how is that better? would you be able to afford it? consider all of those things when you are watching him run and jump off of things.
Look up Osteochondrosis Dissecans (OCD). Your dog is at the age where rapid growth can result in an uneven growth rate of his bones and joints, this will make him much more supportable to such injuries. confine him to a small area and let him rest for few weeks. don't let him run around and definitely no jumping.
