• Somehow our front door got open while we were gone and our dog got out. She was right by the house when we went looking for her, but she is now limping and not putting much pressure on her right front leg. What should we do?

    If your dog still is limping when you get this message, you need to take her to the veterinarian for an examination. Without a physical examination, there is no way to know whether this is something minor (hopefully) that will heal with rest, or whether it’s something that left untreated will be a big problem for her. Please make an appointment to have her seen as soon as possible.
