Welcome to Justanswer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian, and would like to assist you. I will respond quickly after reviewing your question.

Expert:  Dr. Loretta replied 9 months ago.

Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

Most likely, Diva only sprained a tendon or ligament with this jump. Give her aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to decrease the inflammation that is causing her pain as long as she is eating. This will probably be all you need to do...keep Diva immobile as possible to allow this area to heal. If she will still not put the foot down by tomorrow, take her to your vet for an exam.

Most cases such as this are merely sprains and will resolve on their own.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****

are you still here
Expert:  Dr. Loretta replied 9 months ago.

That is ok....we do not want her to walk upstairs...try to keep her immobile and carry Diva in and outside. This will help this heal along with the aspirin. If she is not significantly improved by morning, have your vet examine her to eb safe.
