Favoring His Leg

Well, I got Bailey through the big D. Now last night when I came home and he greeted me with his usual exhuberant greeting. I put my stuff down turn around and noticed he was standing there with his left leg up. At first I didn't think anything of it. However, I noticed anytime he was standing for any length of time, he kept his left front leg up. He doesn't limp, he does seem to favor that leg ever so slightly when he's walking, but he uses all four legs. He still seems to be his usual happy self. He does jump on the couch and the bed, and jumps around when he greets me. He doesn't yelp at all. I've checked his paw and it looks fine. I've felt all over his leg and shoulder and he doesn't show any sign of pain. Should I be concerned at this point? I am limiting his jumping as best I can. Any ideas of what I could be dealing with? Today he doesn't seem to be any worse - just the same.

Is there any swelling at all? It could be a lot of things. I would be a little concerned that it has been a day and he is still obviously be in some pain. Personally I would be heading to the vet because 1) I would want some pain medicine if it's a minor issue or 2) x-rays if it's something serious.

I agree. Better to try and find out early!
