Tear In Front Leg, Now Limping in Health and Medical discussion Posted May 26, 2013 Thanks. The bleeding is not as bad as yesterday but when he moves that's when it starts to bleed again. We just came back from a short potty walk. He was not great but was walking, slowly but walking. He is putting weight on the leg, when standing up but when he moves he limps. I checked pretty thorough for foreign bodies too. Does not look like it. The gash does not appear very large but I am still concerned with his general lameness. It is so scary when they get hurt all of a sudden. I guess a more general question would be-can a tear right across the back of a greyhound's front leg cause lameness?
