Sprain or Broken Leg
Hi, I have a Yorkie who is 1 year old. I called his vet because when he woke up he was limping from his left side. He told me that if he didn't scream when I touch his legs or cry when he walks that it must be a sprain muscle. He gave me an appointemnt for tomorrow morning. I'm suffering because it really kills me to see my adorable Achilles this way. If someone already when trough this please advise me.

It's probaly just his Achilles heel. LOL
I'm sorry I couldn't resist that.
Welcome to YT.
I think if it were broken he would be in a lot more pain.

I vote for a sprain. Two weekends ago Lex jumped out of my youngest daughters hand. We cried like a banchee and limped. I was ready to rush to the vets but being a holiday weekend no one was there. DH checked the leg and figured that there was no breakage or dislocation and told me to wait...some nice folks here on YT also told me to watch for a day or so. Sure enough a day passed and he was improving. By the second day he was back to normal. So I would say if he is not crying then watch it and see how it goes. I know it's hard to do..I was ready to break the bank.
Lulu will always be in my heart
