About an hour ago. We were taking them for a walk in the wildlife area.

Okay thanks

I see this a lot and virtually 100% of the time things resolve in 24 to 48 hours time

Lets give Aspirin at 10.0 mg/pound twice daily with food

Keep her very quiet and update me tonight

Okay?

Paul

Dusty is doing better. I gave her a little less than 1/2 a baby aspirin and within the half hour she was up and following me everywhere I went and kept trying to play with her Chihuahua-doggie sister. Trying to keep her down was impossible. Around 6 pm she started slowing down and limping again. Right now she is sleeping and hiding her paw from me. It is still real tender. I will give her another part of the aspirin in the morning if she is still in pain.1

How is she this AM?

She is doing good. If she is limping it is a slight limp that isn't real noticeable. I watched her when we went out to feed the chickens and I didn't notice a limp. Thank you for your help.

Good news

Thanks

Paul
