Q. A couple weeks ago my Lu Lu hurt one of her legs. Last night she made a scream and again this a.m. I feel no lumps or breaks she just is in pain
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. Thanks for your question. I would strongly recommend to take her to you veterinarian as soon as possible to have the leg checked and the pain treated. She would benefit from complete rest in the meantime. It may be caused by a small comminute fracture at any level which cannot be palpated. Ligament injuries are possible as well. If your require to discuss this problem further please engage in a consultation or take her to your vet.

A. If she is in pain she requires pain medication to be prescribed by a vet after a full physical exam to identify the source of her problem. You do not mention how she hurt the leg originally or whether it is a front or hind leg so it is very difficult to speculate on what might be causing the problem but any injury which does not resolve within 72hours or recurs should be assessed fully by a vet and/or physiotherapist
