Beagle Leg Problems: Limping, Broken Leg, Damaged Nail and Others: Older Beagle Limping

Somewhat obvious and observable causes of limping are stated down below.

Broken Leg

While it is not easy to ensure if the leg is broken indeed, when you see your dog having great, terrible pain or when you see the dog cannot put any pressure on the damaged leg without whimpering, you should take it to animal hospital right away where you can get x-ray and see is the leg broken indeed.

Damaged Nail

This one is especially common for dogs with long nails. You have to examine every nail to see wether it is turned, bent, split or even missing. Sometimes the nail will not be fully detached, when damaged heavily, so you really have to carefully examine all of them.

Bites and Bruises

If you notice some of these, then you can try to clean the wound and disinfect it (if your dog allows so). If the wound is too large, you’d better take your dog to vet to make a proper bandage and apply antibiotics if the infection happened. And do not allow your dog to lick the wounded area to prevent infection.

Splinters and Small Cuts

You can pretty much deal with these on your own. Make someone hold the dog while you removing the splinter, and make sure you clean and desinfect the place. Do not allow your dog to lick it aswell in order to prevent infection.

Rash between Toes

Usually caused by the dog walking to much, this may also be the case of yeast infection. The swelling may also appear if your dog licks the paw too much when it itches. Examine the paw, if you dont see any inflammation, and it doesnt smell or look too terrible, then you may let it heal on it’s own. Otherwise, take your dog to a vet.

When You Should Consult Your Veterenarian

  • your dog growls/snaps at you while you try to inspect it’s leg;
  • you are not comfortable with inspecting the dog’s leg;
  • you notice terrible smell or swelling;
  • your Beagle was bitten by another animal;
  • the dog is in great pain;
  • your dog is constantly depressed or doesnt have an appetite;
  • you cant figure out the cause of pain.
Warning! One of the most serious, yet sneaky problems is hip dysplasia.

Obviously, it doesnt affect front legs, only back ones. When your dog walks/runs with altered gait, tries to avoid any activity which requires extensive movement of rear legs(like climbing or exercises), doesnt feel happy from usual walking/exercises and becomes depressed and irritable, then yout Beagle is most likely in great pain from hip dysplasia.
