My 10 month old Shih Tzu fell of the trampoline cried really hard but she stopped after a couple of minutes. She puts mild pressure on her back leg and when running she only uses 3 legs. Sometimes she uses her 4 legs but it has been like that for about 3 days now. Any recommendations or ways to help her? bandage her up?

Good morning, sorry about your pup. I would get her into the vet for an X-ray and examination. She may have broke it, even though she’s able to put pressure on it and use it from time to time. She could have a hairline fracture, or there could be an issue with ligaments or muscle. Best to have an exam and get your vet’s professional opinion and go from there. Good luck!

I concur – get her to the vet. If you have access to an ortho specialist, that’s probably where I’d go. Please don’t let dogs on the trampoline!
