Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.
How old is your dog?What breed is she?
Does she put any pressure on that foot at all?
Is it a front leg or rear?
Awesome...and have you tried resting her at all yet?
Any swelling that you can notice?
Does it bother her if you press all around that leg?
Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Just like in human medicine, we can't actually give you a dose of aspirin for your dog without an in person consult....however, I can direct you to a good spot to find that dose: http://www.walkervalleyvet.com/otc-meds.htm
Just make sure you only give aspirin...we never give products containing acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen sodium to dogs because they're toxic even in small amounts.
That being said...if you don't see an improvement in the next week or so, since it's been almost a month, you might want to have the vet take a quick x-ray, just to rule out things like greenstick fractures or hairline fractures...just to be safe.
I hope this helps.
