Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Is it just one leg that is bothering him? 2) Is he unable or unwilling to stand? 3) Do you have a picture of the leg? 4) Do you live in an area where snake bites are common? 5) Any risk of an animal bite to his leg? 6) Is the whole leg swollen or just the lower portion? 7) Any other history of concern? Coughing? Gagging? Vomiting? Diarrhea? Drooling?
