My basset hound is...

My basset hound is 4 months old. She triped on her ears and fell down two steps of stairs. She is limping, but still walking, although she is trying to sit more. Could she have broken her little leg? She isn't crying. She yelped when it happened but she lets me touch her leg. Is there something I can do to make her more comfortable until tomorrow?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the basset hound's name?

Ruby

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ruby?

She's wonderful?

Hello Monique

I think that Ruby is going to be just fine

But lets give her Aspirin at 10.0 mg/pound now with some food

And then tuck her into bed

Okay?
