Puppy randomly yelps

So everything was fine until I woke up this morning and heard a sudden yelp from my 11-month-old Archie. I later checked him everywhere and nothing seemed to cause him pain so I went outside to play with him and his Puller toy and suddenly after I threw it he refused to pick it up. He now walks all day with his mouth closed and won't even chew his favorite toys. The yelps happen at random and so far I heard maybe 5-6 yelps since morning. Could something be stuck in his throat or could it be a toothache?

Vet visit. He could have tweaked his neck.

I don't know what happened but an hour right after I posted this he went back to normal as nothing happened. He started chewing his toy and all his energy came back. He is now playing with my brother in the backyard and is back to his normal self. I think it might've been something in his throat since I was massaging it when he was lying down and he was sort of relieved by it. Idk but I'll keep an eye on him and see if the pain returns.

My boy Hoss developed some yelping a few years ago after he wiped out doing some zoomies.
Cost me a fortune ...spinal tap....MRI’s etc to find out he had an inflamed nerve in his neck.
As you observe pup ....note how pup walks up and down stairs....maybe avoid games that tug on his neck.
Note if he bows down to water bowl....versus extending his neck downwards.
Wouldn’t hurt to keep things mellow for a day or so ...and monitor just watch to see if pup moves in unusual ways.
These pups are so good at covering pain....real tough time to have to go to a vet.....hope yelping never returns causes such worry for us humans.

I think it might've been something in his throat since I was massaging it when he was lying down and he was sort of relieved by it.

This bothers me , If he had something that caused him pain in his throat - then what was it ? If it was that big to cause this problem -Keep a good eye on him for a blockage - throwing up after eating , quit drinking water , and there are other things to watch for but CRS it hitting me again .

It maybe he had hurt himself some place else - or did he just have a upset tummy ?

If it happens again - get him to a Vet first before posting on here .

Serious question.

If he was yelping randomly, and the first time you looked him over "nothing seemed to cause him pain" and now, i.e., right after you posted the first time, he "went back to normal"...how have you determined whatever it was is now gone?

If it was random, and he also didn't seem in pain when you checked him over (presumably sometime in the midst of his yelping episodes), then there wasn't a pattern against which you can compare him not yelping since the last time it happened.

So...without determining the problem and being unable to identify a pattern of his yelping, how do you figure its resolved?

IME, dogs don't yelp for the hell of it. If he were my dog, I'd still have the vet look him over in case he's injured his neck or cracked a tooth under the gum line or something is caught in his throat or any number of other reasons that he might be in enough pain to yelp.

Your dog, your call. Good luck.

my dog did that around 3yrs old... concluded she was tweaking her neck somehow because it was coordinated with when she would raise her neck.... stopped happening and then came here and there one or two times within 5 more years.
