Leg injury in puppy
My siberian husky pup (5.5 months old) has somehow hurt her rear left leg. I think it's because she took a sharp turn whilst playing with a lab on the field and pulled a muscle.
The strange thing is that the few days following the accident she didn't limp as much as she does now. She limps badly.
She still runs and jumps around but heavily favours her rear right leg. I felt around the whole leg and paw (nothing felt broken) and I think I found a region that was more tender (i.e. when my puppy looked at me as if saying, 'stop, that hurts'). It's the inside thigh. I'm getting really worried...Do you know if I should take her to the vet or wait it out? I love her a lot and I want to do the best thing but the vet is fiendishly expensive so I'd like to know if you guys think I'm just paranoid and should weather it out.
Please help, my heart is breaking for my little dog
