i dropped my pup and he is limping
my pup was playing rough then rolled over and started crying and limping.
Do you think he sprained or broke something? I am so worried.
Well, it's possible that he actually injured himself if he fell from much of a height, particularly if he's a small/tiny breed.
However, puppies can make a big fuss and limp for a short while even if they haven't done anything serious. If he only limps for a matter of an hour or two, and he isn't crying or whining as he does so, then chances are he's just fine.
But, if he seems to be in pain or shows signs of stress (such as whining, panting, shivering etc.), and/or the limping lasts for several hours, then I would strongly suggest you have a veterinarian take a look at him.
Best of luck, hope he's running around again soon.
