Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear what happened to Nanny. Since the dog that attacked her was unknown and gone now and not available to be checked, is Nanny current on her rabies vaccination?Bite wounds almost always get infected and that can cause pain enough for the dog not to walk on the leg. A fracture is possible, but unlikely in a dog fight.Nanny needs pain medication and antibiotics. She may need to have the wound flushed or drained. I agree she needs to be seen. Is there anyone who can help you get her in the car? If not, you could see if there is a house call veterinarian in your area.
You are welcome. Please let me know how she is doing.
