my dog has a swollen back right hip and yet when i touch him or his leg he makes no signs of wimpers or noise or anything and act as if there is nothing wrong but when he walks he limps or only walks on three legs and i have felt all around and i dont feel anything broken so i dont know what to do and i dont have a clue what happened
it is hard to "guess" what might be wrong with your dog...did this just start today? How long has it been limping? Any other symptoms? How old is the dog? What breed? What was it doing before this happened? To be on the safe side...I'd take him/her into the vet and have it checked out just for your peace of mind.
One of my friends dogs showed thhe same symptoms. She took it to the vet and found out that it was the reaction to a poisionous insect or spider bite. They ruled out snake bite because there were no puncture wounds. I would take it t the vet just to be on the safe side. I think they put the dog on antibiotics and it was able to go home that same day.
