I accidently stepped on my Shih Tzus left back leg when going out of the house last night. She limps on it but doesn't want to put pressure on her paw. Suggestions please? -Karen-

Dear Karen,

I would give Promaxol or Arthro-IonX to minimize the pain, swelling, and inflammation. You can also apply a cool compress for about 10 minutes at a time, a few times a day if she seems to like it. If the limp doesn't get better soon you should see your veterinarian to see what damage has occurred.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
