Hi hfulkerson, my 9-month-old male has started doing this too - it's a worry. I've taken him to two vets who both say it's nothing to worry about. The first one thinks it may be a ligament injury which will take a long time to heal. The second one isn't sure what it is and prescribed anti-inlammatories and pain killers. I'm not sure about the drugs as, if there is an injury, that will mask the pain and he may do more damage.I was wondering if anyone has experienced noticeable & frequent limping in their beagles. Mine limps quite a bit and I've discussed it with my vet who basically said that if she isn't expressing pain to not worry about it. It's hard not to be concerned.
