    Defaultsprained leg

    I have a question... Dio sprained his right front leg about a day or 2 ago and has really started limping and not wanting to put weight on it. Besides no running and jumping and letting him rest, is there anything else to do to make him better?

    Has he been seen by a vet?

    What BigBrownDog said. Sure it is a sprain and not something torn or broken?

    Yeah - any favoring of a limb that is beyond a few moments/hours needs vet attention in my opinion. If he is not putting any weight on it I would be concerned about an ortho problem. If it is just a soft tissue injury, he'll need rest and quiet - but if it is more serious you are just potentially making it worse by waiting.

    Hmmm... ok. Too bad the vet is closed now and tomorrow. I'll call Monday and get him checked if it's not better by then. He's been sleeping/resting a lot, so that's good. He can walk on it, but with a limp. Poor puppy...
    I really hope that it's nothing serious.

    Well, Dio has an appt. today at 4. The vet tech sounds really worried, so my suspisions were right. He might have something worse than a sprained paw/leg since his limping is worse, he might have an ear infection and has a gross green goup coming out of his eye (the same side as the ear infection). My poor baby.... I wish that I hadn`t had to work today!
