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, ***** *****
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.
You are very welcome!! I hope sweet Diva feels better soon! This kind of thing happens all the time and most are minor sprains that will resolve quickly.
That is perfect...good job!! This will really help. Please pet me know how she is later today...thanks!!
You got it now...heres hoping Diva feels better.
