Today when I took Blitz out to go to the bathroom, he jumped up and I guess landed on his foot wrong and yelped a little. When he puts weight on it he whines for a little bit then stops. When I touch or examine it, it doesn't seem to bother him. His limp is very slight. So what should I do now? Take him to the vet? (This all happened about 20 minutes ago) or should I wait and see if it improves or gets worse?

Hi. I know it's been a day now, so you may have already gone to the vet or seen an improvement. I've had my dogs hurt their foot like that from time to time, and usually they'll walk it off within a hour or so. I'd think if you don't see him walking on it normally after a few hours, you should call your vet.

I hope he's feeling better!
