my 15 month Cairn Terrier has been limping since Sunday after we returned from park. I noticed she slightly limping on Suday night. She is lifting her right leg while walking starting Monday morning.

On Sunday, she ran around in the park.

Overall she remains activity and eating well.

I don't see any obvious injury such as blood, stone, breaken nail
and nothing appear under her paw and between fingers

any idea what might cause the problem?
how should I take care of her?

She may have pulled a muscle. Keep an eye on it and no running or playing for a few days if she is still favoring it see the vet. They pull muscles similar to humans rest is the best thing for it. But if it persist see the vet it may be a tear but if she is not in pain I am guessing a pull.
