Customer Question

I was playing with him yesterday. Jumping game. My dog fell on his back left leg. As the day went on he was limping on his back left leg. Now today he wont walk on his back leg at all. He cant really do stairs. He just threw up as well.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?
Customer: Otherwise thats the only problem he has ever had. We play alot go to dog parks as well as hiking. Just a freak thing he landed wrong. He is a pitbull/ boxer mix. He is 5 years old.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.

Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. He will not walk on the hind leg at all? That is not good. Do you see or feel any swelling?
