Customer Question
I have a 7...

I have a 7 month old Chihuahua. He fell off of our bed last night and will not use his back right leg. We felt it and he does not cry or make any kind of discomforting noise or actions but he still will not use it today. Not sure what it is or what to do

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 dog's name and age?

His name is ***** ***** he is 7 months old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Milo?

No he is perfectly healthy

Customerresponding to your questions and concerns regarding Milo.When he fell off the bed he may have injured muscles, bone, tendons, & ligaments. This may be a short term & minor injury, such as a bruise, or more serious such a luxated or out of joint hip, torn knee ligaments, or even a broken bone.How much does Milo weigh?
We can discuss a dose for aspirin.

He weighs almost four pounds. I was planning on taking him in to see a vet later today. I just want to make sure I'm not missing something very vital

Glad Milo will be seen before the Easter weekend, Thank U!!Please don’t feed him breakfast, in case he needs pain meds & possible sedation. Give him TLC, cuddle, keep warm, stay with him when he goes outside to go to Bathroom, using an ice pack on the injured leg will help, frozen peas or othe veggies works great, put a towel between Milo & ice pack.Since going to Vet, his small size let’s Not give any aspirin.Glad to look @ video of Mr. Milo.
