Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

Its been going on for 2 days and in just a lil worried.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Yes there are no wounds and we did have someone spray espestice inside to treat for some bugs and he snuck back inside one of the rooms like twice..

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a video of these leg spasms to to our conversation? You can upload a video to YouTube or a similar app and then give me the link to it. Leg spasms can represent pain, tremors or partial seizures.
