Customer Question
My dog is keeping...

My dog is keeping her leg straight and not putting pressure on it at all. We looked at her leg and paw and didn’t see anything wrong. Is there anyway we can do something for her at home?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with your dog?

She’s not putting pressure on her leg and limping. We checked her paw and leg and found nothing wrong

Veterinarian's Assistant: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

Yes. We didn’t find anything

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know what to do. What is your dog's name and age?

Penny and 10 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Penny?

10 years old in dog years

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

She’s panting and crying, not acting herself at all
