My pregnant dog is limping.

The only thing to do is take her to your vet. She probably has injured her leg, which has nothing to do with her being pregnant. The vet can tell you what is wrong.

If your dog is limping identify which leg. Then gently examine the leg to isolate the area in pain. Check the joints by gently applying pressure. Examine the paw is there a foreign object embedded? If you cannot isolate the area of concern your dog needs to visit a vet.

It would be advisable to first check your dog's paw for any kind of horn or prick or lump. Limping is not related to pregnancy. Limping could also be due to some fracture,ligament injury or kind. In case you are not able to detect any signs then it would be best to take your dog to the veterinarian immediately.

Take her to the vet immediately! If it was an accident, the puppies could be in danger. If she is getting too heavy, her health is at risk.
