whats up with my dog :(

my dog is a 4 year old lab x staff. Hes always been very energetic and playful but in the last 2 weeks its as if there's somethings wrong with his mouth/jaw, he hardly picks anything up and when he does hes very careful, which is unusual. The lady at the pet shop had a look and says he looks fine, I hope shes right maybe its the heat? Im not sure what to do.
Thanks for reading, if anyone has any idea what this could be I'd really appreciate it xx

Have you researched whether that breed has joint problems? I would have him seen by a vet either way. They can give him medication to help if he is in pain or if he has an infection.

Any other joint issues? Ticks/lyme is popular near me. At 4 he may need a dental cleaning. How is he otherwise? Vet trip would be in order.

Pet shop? Why not vet? Would you take your child to a toy store for a check up?
