My very healthy 10 year old male Shiz Tzu jumped off a chair and yelped…

My very healthy 10 year old male Shiz Tzu jumped off a chair and yelped just once and now is limping and can put a small amount of pressure on his back right leg and is showing no sign of pain and is eating and drinking normally and also can play. could this be a pulled muscle? I’m a bit concerned. Thank you

Hello,
If the limping persists or worsens please call your vet for an examination. I expect an exam and possibly an X-ray are indicated to identify the source of the pain and lameness. I worry about fractures, dislocation and knee injuries.
