So she has not been putting any weight on her leg for 2 months?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Not really, she's putting a little weight on it now, and get along fine, but her leg is still hurt

I'm sorry to hear she has been in pain for such a long time. It's time to get her to the vet for an exam, pain meds, and an x-ray.

I would have taken her already but can't afford it, do you know if there are indigent svcs available

I would call around to different animal shelters in your area and ask them for low-cost treatment options. They may either be able to provided you discounted care themselves, or know of some animal organizations that provide those kinds of services.
