  My dog's leg is hurt--what should I do?
My chihuahua randomly got his leg hurt, I have no idea how, he whimpers and sometimes nips at me when I touch his leg. It doesn't have any blood on it or anything visible. He is usually pretty active, jumping on and off couches and what not. What should I do?
Thanks everyone! And gentleannie, there is nothing wrong with me! I was mainly wondering if I should let him rest for a day and see if it is something small.
By the way there are no adults in the house. I'm thirteen, but I'm pretty sure I'd need someone to take me to the vet. So fyi I would be asking for their help if I could!

let him rest up. if it doesnt start getting better in 2-3days then maybe i would give a call to the vet

my dogs have also hurt there legs randomly a couple of times, but it got better the next day. maybe your dog was just playing a little to hard one day and twisted his leg or something =]. i wouldnt worry to much unless it seems like she is not getting any better after a few days

You don't need blood to have a serious injury!

Please be safe and take him to a vet so he can get checked out, its sounds like he is in a lot of pain.

Take him to the vets, he may have broken a bone, only an x-ray will show this.
