Today I noticed that when he walks down the stairs, he doesn’t use his right foot. He holds it up and doesn’t put it down like normal walking. He just uses the other limbs to walk down the stairs. He uses all his limbs to walk and run though. My dog rarely limps but I have seen him limp before. Does someone know why this is? Do you think I can skip the vet for this issue? Thanks!

It could just be an odd habit or a small form of O.C.D, but just in case I would have him checked out by the vet in case it might be a joint issue.
