She is a normal healthy 6.5 yr old Corgi. We went for a walk yesterday, she ran a bit then suddenly she started limping. Ended up carrying her home and he has not peed since about 6pm yesterday. She is not peeing, drinking or walking and is starting to act pretty lethargic.

2) Any history of illness or injury?
3) Where was she running when she began limping?
4) Are ticks a problem in your area?
5) Any diagnostics performed on the leg yet?
6) Is she holding it up or dragging it?
