How are going to help me if you didn't even ask what kind of dog she was
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed veterinarian. I would happy to help answer your questions.

I apologize but the person that initially responded to your question is the moderator who screens the questions.

What breed is Bella? How long ago was she hit by a car? How fast was the car driving approximately? Did you or anyone else witness the incident? Is Bella otherwise healthy prior to incident?

Please let me know when you are back online so I can do my best to help you. Thank you!

Customer: replied 8 days ago.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Hot hit
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Okay, thank you for that additional information. Please give me a few minutes to type a response to your question regarding her lameness on her left hind limb. Thank you.

Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

If Bella is holding the limb up and not even toe-touching on it when she walks, then it is possible she has a fracture or broken bone. If she is significantly lame but still toe touching, then it is still possible she has a fracture but sustained a soft tissue injury and not a fracture. It is a good sign that there are no obvious wounds on the limb, however, this does not necessarily mean she is okay. I would recommend she be taken to your family vet either tonight or first thing in the morning. The vet may able to feel a fracture just by careful manipulation of the limb. Even if a fracture is not palpated on manipulation of the limb your vet may want to perform an x-ray to evaluate for signs of a hairline fracture or luxated joint. Your vet would then also be able to prescribe Bella an anti-inflammatory medication to help her recover faster. I do not recommend administering any over the counter medications for Bella, as these can be damaging to her liver and kidneys. Please keep Bella cage rested until she is able to be evaluated by your vet. Cage rest for 14 days is mandatory with any soft tissue injury in order for the pet to heal appropriately. No running, jumping on or off of furniture, stairs or playing for 14 days. She can be carried outside while on a leash and collar for bathroom breaks, then carried back inside to her crate.

Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Hopefully Bella has a soft tissue injury from her incident and not a fracture. Treatment for soft tissue injuries is strict rest, veterinary prescribed anti-inflammatory medication and sometimes a pain medication.

If Bella worsens at any point she should be taken to her vet for evaluation. Please monitor her for signs of pain, limb swelling, worsening of lameness, and decreased appetite.

She is just laying down mostly is that normal her gums are normal color and I believe she is eating the same
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
My 10 year old is really worried about her as well
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
She is laying around more then normal
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Her gums are normal pink color? Has she urinated normally today? Will she get up when you feed her or call her to you?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Her gums are normal pink in color not sure if she has urinated today she looks at me when I call her she drinking and eating not sure if as much as normal
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
She does not have a cage she sleep with my son on his bed or in her bed
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
She super spoiled and lays on the sofa with us
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Okay. Could you please tell me if you think her belly is painful if you gently press on it?

Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

I understand that Bella normally sleeps with your son, however, I strongly recommend purchasing a small dog crate so she can be appropriately rested in order to heal. If you have a baby play pen (such as "Pack 'n Play") this would also work to restrict her activity.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I push on her belly She doesn't do anything how would I know if it was painfully to her
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I just carried her to her water bowl and she drank water
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Signs of abdominal pain include being tense when touched and crying out. Unfortunately, it is difficult for me to tell you if Bella can wait to see a vet until the morning or not without being able to see her and examine her. It is a good sign that she is eating and drinking, however, it could be a sign of something more serious such as internal injuries if she is mostly laying around today.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
It's hard to tell for me as well because she is lazy I hope she is ok till the morning because vet right now I can not afford
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Another possibility is that her hip may be luxated. The hip is a ball and socket joint and with blunt force trauma it can pop out of place. Please reference this video on youtube that shows a Chihuahua with a hip luxation and you can look at this dog's stance in his hind limb. The way he is holding his leg in the video is very classic for a luxated hip.

My son said the car hit her but didn't run her over if that make any sense it dose not make sense to me
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
How many questions can I ask on this
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Okay. I have seen hit by car patients that owners witness them to more bounce off of the car's tire rather then the tire rolling over them.

I do not think there is a limit to questions asked per specific problem a pet is having.

Are there any additional questions that you have regarding Bella's injury?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
How can I tell if she in pain, and what can I do for now to comfort her
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
She stand and holds her leg up while eating drinking and only barely puts it down when walking but mostly hold it up are those signs of a luxation
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Signs of pain are whining, restlessness, excessive panting, trembling, decreased energy level, and decreased appetite. She is in some degree of pain since she is not wanting to put much weight on the limb. It is definitely a possibility that her hip could be luxated, but also very possible she has a fracture. The best thing you can do for her is keep her rested and get her to a vet as soon as you can for further treatment.

Please continue to monitor her for worsening of limping, crying, leg swelling, distended or painful abdomen, decreased appetite and worsening of lethargy. If she worsens at any point, then she should be taken to a 24/7 emergency vet overnight. ER vets are more expensive as they are open 24/7, but you can always call ahead and ask for prices including office visit, x-ray and pain medication.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
If she does not walk like the dog in the YouTube video does that mean it not that
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

Most of the dogs I have treated with hip luxations have that classic stance where they are holding the hind limb up off of the ground, but their toe/foot is turned inwards. But, I cannot tell you definitively without evaluating her in person.

There is a service called care credit that is a medical credit care that most vet clinics accept. It is a medical credit card that you can apply for online and you get approved based on her credit score. I have a lot of clients who use a care credit card for unplanned emergencies. Please reference this website for additional information if you are interested in applying:

i tried but got denied thank you for your help I hope she is ok till tomorrow and I can afford some help for her
Expert:  Chelsea Schwarb replied 8 days ago.

I'm sorry about that, thank you for applying and trying though.

I also hope she does okay overnight and you are able to get her seen tomorrow morning. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns about Bella. I will be back on the site tomorrow evening, but other veterinarians are able to reply to your questions if I am not online. The other veterinarians are able to view our conversation so you should not have to repeat any information.

Thank you so much for the update I was worried. A hip lux was what I was most concerned for. I am so happy she was able to get it fixed and is on the road to recovery!
