my 10 yr old male is recently having trouble walking

His legs seem weak, especially the right one. he is eating and drinking fine. does he need to see the vet or can i give him over the counter meds?


He licks and bites his feet a lot, but other than that was fine until the last couple of days

See the doc

Could be an issue with the patella in his leg, my dog has this issue but it's not as severe. Don't overly walk him or her. But do take to doc as maybe they can give the dog anti inflammatory or something. Not sure

walking difficulty

licking & biting his feet is a sign of allergies to something. if his leg continues to bother him I would definitely see the vet. Shihtzus can have leg problems in later years.

I would take him to his vet...even if it is something simple at least you will have the peace of mind knowing..
