Thank you for using our service. It sounds like your dog may have pulled a muscle or strained a ligament in her back left leg. This can be painful and may cause limping or difficulty moving.

If you are able to, try gently massaging the area to see if it provides any relief. You can also try applying ice to the affected area for 15-20 minutes at a time to reduce swelling. Make sure to wrap the ice in a towel or cloth so it is not too cold against your dog's skin.

If your dog's limping persists or if she is in severe pain, it may be necessary to visit a veterinarian. They will be able to determine the cause of the limping and provide appropriate treatment.

If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
