    Hi! If she is using the leg hopefully it is not broken and she has just injured a muscle, tendon, etc. Follow the aspirin dosage and keep her isolated for a few day if you can. If you have a dog crate or something to keep her quiet and resting to give the leg time to heal. Do you have a roo? If so, keep him away from her as well. Hope she gets better soon.
