Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. Is it getting worse? Did you check between her paw pads and wiggle all her toes? Do you see any swelling or feel any heat?
Usually if they are non-weight bearing this many hours after an injury an x-ray is recommended to rule out a fracture.
So ideally she should see the emergency vet today.
If that is not an option, keep her as still as possible. Do not let her walk around unless she has to relieve herself outside.
If she is not on any medications and she does not have any health issues then you can give her aspirin. Though as you can imagine aspirin is not strong enough for the pain of a fracture but it could help a bit.
5 mg of aspirin per each pound of dog every 12 hours. Give it with food to help prevent gastrointestinal upset.
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
