Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about Miggy's situation. That is good that he's not overall seeming to be in pain. It is also good that he's putting weight on that leg. Is this current injury tied into what happened there two days ago? Could he have injured it a second time? Those are the considerations. As far as what you can do at home till you can get him to your vet's office, the best is to let him rest, rest, rest. The more he can rest over the next 3 to 4 days, hopefully the better. IF he has just tweaked something, bruised something - then this rest will let that injured tissue hopefully have the time to heal itself. Other than rest, there really isn't anything more specific you can do. You're doing a great job on use of the kennel and trying to limit what physical activity he's able to do.
