He is limping on his front leg and wont eat.

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

No wound. Im so scared We just finished paying our daughters tuition so we dont have money for a vet. It looks a little swollen he wont let me touch it

Hi, this is Dr. Sara. I understand somewhat about the tuition thing. Tell me what type of dog is he, how old and where is it swollen? Do you have a digital thermometer to take his temp? Are you in an area where there are any tick diseases?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No tick disease. He's a 7 year old Chihuahua if i spelled it right. Its a little swollen behind the right front leg. The area is not warm. He wont eat or drink water. I walked in out front to go pee. He just came back in and got in his bed.
