My 8 year old female dog starting holding up her back leg and limping. After rubbing the leg I can't get her to put it on the ground. Any suggestions?
It sounds like your pet is in pain. Since your pet will not place weight on the leg I would have it checked asap. Anything from a break to a sprain is possisble but you will not know unless a vet examines your pet. A simple sprain will usually respond to anti-inflammatories but a more serious injury won't. vetcare
