Q. Hello my dog has had a limp from today in her front leg I have also noticed a blue spot appeared on her face (only small blue spot) she is also wimper

Answered By

A. Not sure exactly what the blue spot is, however the limp could be the indication of a muscle strain or tendon sprain, or even a small fracture in one of the small bones or a toenail or pad injury. Consult your vet, who can help to localize the pain to the exact area that's a problem, then recommend appropriate diagnostics and treatment.
