My Irish Setter, a few months after his 12 birthday started to limp on back leg--bone cancer. Of course I am sure that is not the problem with you girl. But it made me so panicky about a limp. So when my golden girl, age 15 months started to lim--instant panic. Turns out it was a luxating patella. She had the surgery and fixed that knee and then 14 months later, had to have her other knee done. She never had another problme with her knees.
Her littermate came in from playing one day with a front leg lip a few months after KayCee's 2ed knee surgery, ..again, instant panic, but it was just a strained muscle and some meds and few days rest, Hunter was fine.
I really am not one to advise you on when to go to the vet becaue I am paranoid abouyt limps and have taken mine in at once for the slightest limp after Boots was diagnosed with bone cancer (and none have ever had, just strains, the knees, etc. Just wanted to tell you my experiences with limps. and wish you girl the best of luck and hope it is just a strian.
