Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Was it a front or back leg?

Can she put it down to walk on at all?

Has she used it any more then she did on day 1 post fall? Or is she favouring it just as much?

Any swellings or tender areas on the leg?
