Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog! Have you looked over the leg thoroughly? Checked all toenails, toes, foot pads and underside of food for any wounds or swelling? check the knee for swelling (sometimes having your dog stand so you can feel the 2 knees side by side will help you determine if any swelling is present), and manipulate the leg- flexing and extending all the joints to see if there is an area that is sensitive?
