My dog seems to not want to put weight on her right nd leg.

Customer Question

My dog seems to not want to put weight on her right hind leg. We didn't think much of it but she's laying around a lot like she doesn't feel good.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Sophie 1 yr
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sophie?
Customer: She got hold to 1 of my 30 mg cymbalta's but I got it away from her. That was yesterday afternoon though and I got it away but she may have gotten some of it in her mouth
JA: OK. Got it. 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 then connect you two.

Hi, JACustomer.

Did this just begin today?

Is she wiling to use it intermittently or not at all?

Have you checked the foot to ensure there's no wound or sticker present?

What breed is she?

Is she on any medication at this time (see that she nearly ingested Cylbalta)?

We ended up taking her to a local vet and she is on antibiotics and after 3 days is finally back to her old self!!! Thanks for your response.
