i've heard enough horror stories about different vets to understand that, but still the dog needs something, often the earlier you deal with a break/sprain the better...
i would check that site i posted and see if you could atleast find one to call in for advice...i dunno, most of the time they won't give you advice over the phone...but they may be able to tell you how to stabilize the leg and what you can use for the pain...whether or not to ice...and it may help you find the next closest one...you can call them and talk to them before you do anything else
it may also help you find an "after hours" on-call vet...which is a bit different...my vet does after hours on call and the nearest e-vet is about 45min from my town.....
