I came home from the groceries store and my German Shepard is limping. It's her left front leg, so it's not anything to do with her hips. There is no blood or visible injury. She puts some weight on it. She can stand normally but can't put weight on it when she walks. She just saw a squirrel and high tailed it across the yard, so she can sort of run, but with a weird gait. My problem is that the vet closes on Saturdays at noon, and charges a heafty fee to come in after hours. Is this something that can wait till Monday? It doesn't seem to severe, but if it's something that is going to get worse if I leave it alone a day and a half then I am willing to get the money for it.
Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!
