Thank you for using our service. If your dog has a suspected sprained leg, it is important to take her to the animal hospital as soon as possible to receive proper treatment. In the meantime, you can try to keep your dog as comfortable as possible by providing a soft, padded surface for her to rest on, and avoiding letting her jump or climb stairs. You should also monitor her appetite and water intake to make sure she is still eating and drinking enough. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
