Customer Question

My dog started limping a couple days ago from her left hind leg and it seems to be getting worse. My wife took her to the vet today and said it's most likely dislocated or broken. We don't have funds for an x-ray and I would like to splint her paw.

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give the best advice possible...

What is your zip code?

Are the finances the only thing stopping you from x-rays?

Did they say where they thought it was broken?

Is the leg swollen?
