Unhappy leg problems.

Dog loves to play fetch.
We went to the beach, player fetch for a while. First time in the beach. I did notice some jelly fish on the ground.

After we finished he kept licking his paws, so I thought maybe he had something that cut him or stuck, but I didn't find anything. Fee hours later after his nap, he cried to stand up. Sometimes he does that if he is really soar.

So its been a week now and I noticed he won't jump at all to play, will not jump up into my truck anymore. Has a lot of energy buy won't jump at all. So I picked him up from his front legs and hurd a loud yell and saw his left leg limp. So I put him down.
Went to play fetch and obvious didn't want to put much pressure on his left let but still used it.
Been letting him rest is with no hard activity. Took him to the vet to check it out, thy walked him around and moved his leg around and saw nothing. Well I told them its when he had to put a lot of pressure like to take of running or jumping.
I took him again today and he runs a little better but u can see he only puts about 50% pressure on that leg to sprint and limps on his way back.
I've massaged the leg to see if I can find where there is pain, but nothing at all. Not sure what to do, could it be something internal? He is on his 3rd week on raw diet. Would pancreaitis create this? Or anyhing else?

Why are you taking him running and to play fetch if his leg is lame? Did you get an x-ray done? That only seems to make sense to me. and no .....raw isn't going to cause pancreatitis and cause him to limp like that. he obviously has an injury or hairline fracture .

Yeah a sprain doesn't really cause whimpering did he whimper at the vets? Can you take him back for an xray? When my pup sprained his paw, I thoght he was better and he would go out and injure it again. I had to keep my boy on strict crate rest for about 3 months in order to fix his sprain. If he was not in going the bathroom he was only allowed to lay by my side or in his crate. Even though you THINK its healed, its not and one false move will set your pup way back again. It will not kill your dog to not have activity for a few months. His attitude might kill you, lol, like my pp did SO ANNOYING when he is FULL on energy, but you gotta get that healed and rested, so the pain is VERY worth it in the long run.

Front leg or back? Your pup is obviously painful, and dogs, being dogs, will overexert themselves and worsen injuries when given the chance. Have you had it checked out?

This indicates a serious underlying problem, IMO. If he is crying upon standing after exercise as a general rule, or even as a 'sometimes',you really should get that checked out.

All I know is it was most likely Not jelly fish. I have been stung by those, it feels like fiber glass or stinging neddle. But unless your dog is allergic to bee stings then he would of been dead by now. Jelly fish stings would not cause week long pain, you would either be a little sore for a few hours or dead.

Also depending on the leg it could be back problems, or hip problems. I know certain vertebrates can cause pain in different places. Maybe try a dog chiropractor? Just a thought. You can correct me if i'm wrong.
