Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello! My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with your dog today.
Do you notice any swelling at all?
When did this happen?
Okay...great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Since it happened several hours ago and he's still acting really painful, I absolutely think that the best thing to do is to have him seen by a vet for a quick x-ray.
Even if the leg isn't fractured (and to be honest, I'm a little worried it may be) they'll get him on some pain medication to help keep him comfortable until it heals.
I hope it's just a sprain, but getting it seen is going to give you the best outcome.
I hope this helps.
