Hi,

I have an 8 month old puppy and sometimes on walks she will have very stiff hind legs, and will sometimes walk really funny and kick her legs out, and it looks painful as she's lagging behind. I'm taking her to the vet, but just wondering because as soon as we come inside to my home she runs around and her legs look normal again,

Is a safe guess that the cold weather makes the pain worse? Or that it's stiff because it's cold?

Just want to see what you all think :)

If she has something like arthritis, yes, cold makes you stiff. Once you move around a bit, that goes away. But she's really young for that. Then again, so am I.

Let us know what the vet says, please.
