Customer Question

Hi I have a guinea pig about 5 months old who appears to have a dislocated hip. Her hind leg is dragging and she is limping on her hind leg rather than walking
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: no not yet....let me check
JA: What is the guinea pig's name?
Customer: Angel
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Angel?
Customer: We have only had her about a month but I just looked and there is no sore but her leg seems to be pointing out. I know my daughter dropped her the other day but this is fresh since yesterday
