    We hand raised this white silkie and about a week ago she started dragging her right leg. She is almost 6 years old and I suspect she slipped on ramp on way down or had a stroke. Eyes clear, feathers healthy...just cannot walk on the leg. She hobbles around anyway, but in very limited way. Any ideas? A trip to vet would more likely kill her than help her at this age. Does not seem to hurt her.
