Paw injury

Kai had a paw injury a few months ago. X-rays showed no sprain, broken bones and good heath but it did show an injury in one of his toes. Bet said nothing serious and to keep him off his feet for a little while. Months later he seemed healed up. I took him to the beach to run and he started limping on the same foot. We are now weeks away from that and he seems to be fine except every now and then when he twist it a funny way he will hold his leg out as if he has a cramp then it goes away and he's fine. He still uses it perfectly fine to jump and especially kick when he does his bull kick in the grass after he poops lol I'm so confused. What am I missing here? Prior to this he always has had trouble with his back leg. If he runs hard (which he can do. He's wild once he has open space) he will do an occasional yelp and limp for a second but then he's fine. I've always thought it was from him jumping and running all crazy and not giving his leg a proper warm up. Any input is appreciated. Since X-rays haven't shown anything I wanted to ask if anyone else had any advice.

India is an unknown quantity at this point
Indy does the same occasionally, she will jump over something, completely fail, land funny and start limping. The more she walks around the more it helps until she is perfectly fine and running around like nothing happened. I don't think it's really anything to worry about if the x-rays have shown no fracture. If you're that concerned try controlling the intensity of the exercise he gets. Also could just be a possibility that he's getting a thorn or stick or rock stuck in between his pads causing him to yelp and limp.

Maybe he has an arthritic toe? lol sounds funny but very possible after the sprain that he will be limp in that foot. Does he get free for all runs often? Maybe get some Rimadyl (its an anti inflammatory/Pain reliever)and on days you know you are gonna be running give him one as a preventative. If he gets free for alls all the time, I don't know what to suggest except not letting him have free for alls lol that's no fun!

it's gotta be one of those injuries that never healed correctly, so the slightest turn in the wrong direction causes pain and tenderness. but normal function is not affected.
i broke a few bones in my hand when i was 17. now, fifteen years later i'm good to go. but once in a while i can be doing something totally normal, like turning a lightbulb or cutting with scissors, and i get sharp pain for just a few seconds.
old war wounds. i think we all have them.

I had a similar issue with my puppy, but it was due to warm and abbrasive asfalt, basically burned his paws.

The treatment was easy but was necessary discipline.

I removed the dead skin, cleaned it with merthiolate or any kind of anti septic and then applied a topic called vetaglos.

One week as enough to heal everything.

Now, every time that I have to run with him to any unknown place I'm using a product used by gundoggers (a wax) in their paws. This protects against everything, including snow.

I will get the product name and put it here. I'm
Importing from gundogsupply.com

Hope that helps
