Limping

We own a cross breed Rottweiler which is 10 years old and lately he is having problems jumping with his back legs. After trying to chase a cat he could tred on the right back leg. After a while it is getting better. Is it just old age?

Maybe - or maybe he has a sprain, or inflammation. See the vet - if you treat this properly now, you may be lucky enough to prevent problems which could seriously impact his longevity.
