I have a four year old rottwieler whom has been limping around and carrying his foot above the ground when he walks. I checked the pad of his paw and in between his toes. I didn't find anything though. He hasn't been whining or anything. I don't know what to do. Should i wait a while to see if gets better? Is there anything i can do for him at home? Or should i just take him to the vet? HELP!!

There is obviously some kind of problem with his leg or foot, which appears to be causing your dog pain if he applies pressure to it.

Yes, you should take your dog to a vet!
