    my 2yo heritage Tom has injured his leg jumping off the porch. We’ve contained in grass area but now he’s chasing chickens and his legs now swollen.

    What can I do to help him heal?and how long does it generally take? Thank you

    Maybe containing him to a smaller kennel where he has enough room to stand and turn but no chasing... start with a couple days and check thereafter. Some things heal quickly while others might take a month. It depends partly on the injury type and also on the individuals immune system.

    Have you inspected to make sure it's just a sprain or strain injury and not an actual break?
