Customer Question

I adopted a 6 yr old poodle last week that had been hit by a car the month before. She had a broken but intact pelvis. I was told to keep her in her crate unless I held her and to help her goto the bathroom. Today after being in the crate all day, she walked like a penguin. I can't get pain meds for her until tomorrow. What can I do.

Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 years and I'd like to help.I do have a few questions first..... Has he been on any pain medications recently? And does she have any other health concerns other than her pelvis?
