Please help- Ginger just started limping
Im not sure what to do- shes at the office with me today, and ive taken her out on 2 little walks where she was fine. She was sleeping in her bed and I woke her up to go for a little walk around the office, she didnt want to move and then I noticed she was holding her front left paw up and if she moved she wouldnt put pressure on it.
I looked at her paw/leg and massaged it, it seems like shes intolerant to me touching the pad of her paw and I saw what might be a tiny cut on one....but I dont know if this is what it is. EDITed to add....shes still not putting any pressure on it and ive seemed to localize it to that one pad with the little cut on it- she starts fidgeting as soon as I touch it. If she got poked with something or stepped on glass or got a splinter....how does one get it out? Is there any chance for infection? Should I go to the vet now? Or wait and see overnight as they suggested?
Shes not crying but shes not walking on it at all.....
