HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you.....so the limp itself is not that concerning but I don't like the swelling....I would definitely would take your dog to the ER....swelling like that could be some serious things....

Can I answer any other questions or tell you what to ask for when you go to the ER?

Expert:  Dr B replied 2 months ago.

So I would ask for a 4DX test, and a CBC and also an xray of the leg...

Can I answer any other questions?

Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have. ( You can rate me at top right of page).

Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
