    Maltipoo hind leg problem

    So the other day I was playing with my dog. She is 4 months.
    As she layer down I walked away to get her ball, and when she got up she started to cry.
    Looks like when she got up too fast she injured her right hind leg.
    She picked up her leg and no longer puts it down.
    She can move it but won't set it down.
    When I try to move it gently down for her from the fibula down, she cries a bit.
    Now I noticed from the fibula down it's very loose. Her leg wobbles and can turn to the side a bit more than the non injured leg.

    Please help.

    You need to take her to the vet.

    An Internet forum is NOT the place to look for a diagnosis, your dog needs to see a vet immediately

    Sounds like a torn Cruciate ligament. It is very painful for the dog. The dog needs to see a vet.

    Well she ain't crying. The vet I took her to said it was sprained and if she didn't get better to take her back Momday for Xray.

    So I will take her tomorrow since I just purchased pet insurance.
