Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he been showing these signs?

Have you only seen the one leg dropped in this manner?

Does he have any swelling or discomfort when you palpate the leg and foot?

Is this leg colder then the other?
