Hello & welcome to the forum.

Can you tell which part of her leg is hurting? It could be something as simple as a strained muscle or tendon, but could also be a sore/bruised paw or even elbow problems.

(I'm moving this to the Health forum.)

Can you move it freely? Moo has a limp atm the mo, and tbh the vets will suggest total rest for a week, literally out for toilets and that is it, also they will pescribe metacam or another anti inflam. I hope you get it sorted, I have just extended Moos walk for the first time today to 30mins (onlead) and just praying I haven't over done it Xx

I would be inclined to keep him off it for a week, and then build up exersize gradually again, if after a few days it is still the same then pop to the vets Xx

I'd say the same as Janey. Short lead walks for a week & if no better see the vet. It might just be a strain & rest will cure it!

For peace of mind, if I was worried as you seem to be, take her to the vets Xx

I think I'd go to the vet as well. Multiple issues that are ongoing could need some professional help
