My 9 year old Labrador has started limping while walking, what to do?

My 9 year old Labrador has started limping while walking. There is no physical injury on his body, I am assuming it may be because of age. He is pretty tall and weighs about 50 KG. What should I do to take care of him?

Hi,

First of all your labrador is extremely overweight. Ideal weight is around 30kgs and he is almost twice that. Here is a link for reference: https://www.dogspot.in/my-labr ador-is-overweight-what-should -i-do/

Because of obesity his legs and spine will become weaker till paralysis, especially at such a senior age. Decrease food intake. Increaase exercize and reduce about 20kjgs pls that would solve most issues.
