Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has she been curling the foot?
Does it look like this (example)?
Does she do so with every step?

When did the swelling first appear?
Is it hot, fluidy, or sore to the touch?

How is she otherwise?

Does the second drug look like Prednisone or Prednisolone?
