Recommended Posts

Hi all hope everyone is well,


This morning i found our girl keira was limping around while outside doing her toilet thing, i checked her over and have found that her back leg from her knee all the way down had swollen up. She isnt putting any weight on it at all. as far as we know she hasnt hit her leg or anything


Has anyone got any ideas please, could it be something i can just bath it with cold water to get the swelling down or should i take her to the vets and have it checked and get something stronger.


Thanks for any help

It could be anything from a reaction to a bug bite or something more serious. I wouldn't want to speculate as it really could be a lot of things. If it were me, I'd get her to the vet, today if possible. If she's in pain it would be awful to make her suffer with it all weekend.

If she isn't bearing weight on it, :unsure I would take her to the vets.

Good luck at the vets, I hope it's nothing serious.
