    Hi I desperately need some advice . My 6 week old frizzle is limping and refusing to put her foot down for long she will walk on it and she still kinda running around and eating drinking but lifts her leg very often as if its hurting . She hasn't fell or been dropped so I honestly don't know how she has done it any advice is brill as its quite upsetting for me to see . I've tried massaging her leg and there are no visible injuries although her leg is a little swollen :(
