Default Hello everyone!

Hi!
I am a new chihuahua mom.
I have a little bitty 1.2 pound 3 month old named Bobo.

we just had an accident and I need some advice for what to do for the night until the vet opens in the morning.

Can someone post a link to the correct forum for me to post.
Many thanks.

Hopefully you've been to the vet this am. With such a tiny pup, you should have an emergency vet number to at least call to see if it is safe to wait until the am. Please let us know what the accident was and what the vet said. We all care. Welcome to the forum!

. Hi there! I was at the vet first thing this am. Appears the pup just sprained his arm. Thankfully no broken bones. Prescribed .02cc of Metacam for inflammation and pain and REST. Pup is doing very well. Thank you.

Hopefully, the vet didn't use a splint on the dogs leg!

We had a sheltie, years ago, who did the same thing. Wouldn't use the leg at all. She had a splint on for a few weeks. It was really funny/sad to see her swing her leg around! Metacam has a cortisone in it, I think, so she may pee more than usual. Just sayin'!

. No actually the vet said it would be better to leave it unwrapped. Metacam is nonsteriodal anti-inflammatory.

Oh! Good! My bad! That's better than a steroid! Hope he is feeling better now.
