My rottie always seems to hurt his front paws when he plays, but it only hurts for a few minutes and then he’s back running around.
Should i be worried he just turned 1 years old on 1 Sep 2011.
I’m assuming that you’ve examined his paws and can’t see any thorns, cuts, swelling or anything like that which could account for the pain.
It’s not common for a dog to have paws that hurt after playing, but perhaps it’s his legs (as in his bones/joints) rather than his paws which are hurting.
Growing pups are heavy and clumsy and can hurt themselves quite easily, there is also a condition called Panosteitis which causes pain and lameness in some pups.
If you can’t find a reason for this then I’d strongly suggest having your own veterinarian check him out to find out what’s causing his discomfort.
Sorry I can’t help more, but I wish you the best of luck with your Rottie.
