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

How did injure himself?

Any swelling, limping, or boney instability when you move the leg?

Any changes to his breathing or paling of his gums?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He injured himself playing with my 2 year old cat, and when he got hurt he cried extremely loud for a long time. When we carried him to see what was going on he cried a lot .. It's the dogs right front leg, at first he was limping and walked one handed because he didn't wanna put pressure on the leg, we massaged it a little and moved it around slowly. Let him lay down a little, now he can put both feet down but he doesn't put a lot of pressure on the leg too much.

Hi again,

That is great news, since we can see serious issues even from mild traumas in our dogs.

So, I am glad to hear that he has settled with rest and will pass your request back to customer service.

Best wishes,

Dr. B.
