    Is anything swollen on her foot or her legs? Do you see any injuries? Can she put the foot down or does she hold it up all the time? Can you move the leg at its joints? She still eats and drinks okay? How long has it been bothering her?

    Does it seem that the leg is broken where the bump is? Does it look like something bit her? You will need to put her in a place where she can get to the water and feed. Make sure she can't drown herself in the water.

    You don't need to medicate without know what for. If it's broken it would need splinting but not if its not broken. You may have to keep an eye on her and see if it starts to get better but make sure she can eat and drink.

    IF she doesn't start getting better in a day or two let us know. Make sure she eats and drinks good. Maybe she just hurt it slightly and needs to heal.
