    Two(free ranged) roosters jumped on my three pound chihuahua and immediately after it occurred she was dragging her left hind leg. From what we can see/feel the joint's not out of place and nothing's broken, but her lower back is extremely sore. I'm bringing her to the vet tomorrow morning, but I'd like any thoughts on what it may be and what I may be able to do for her to prevent any farther damage until I can get her medical help.

    I'm sorry she is in pain. I dont have much advice besides try to keep her has still as possible. More her food water and bed close together block unnecessary areas of the house and keep her off the couch and block any stairs. I would avoid picking her up as much a possible too. If you have a crate I would put her in it before you go to bed. Dogs tend to "get over" pain and try and do things that would cause more injury. Hope she feels better soon!
