Hello,

Expert:  Rebecca replied 5 months ago.

I am sorry to hear your dog had this accident. Is she limping, will she put any weight on the leg?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No weight. Limping
Expert:  Rebecca replied 5 months ago.

If she will not put any weight on the leg at all, it might be broken.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 5 months ago.

It could be broken anywhere from a toe to her shoulder. You would need an Xray to know.

I am sorry but I can't make calls for the website. I can answer questions here, or you can wait for another expert who can make calls.
