Hi there, this is Dr Linda, a UK based vet.

I'm sorry to hear this and understand your concern for Lexi.

What breed is she?

Has she been getting stiff and slow in her old age?

Does she have pale gums, rapid breathing or bloating?

Ok
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
She tripped over doorstep and hurt her back paw
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 14 days ago.

So before this accident she has been normal, and now she can no longer walk?

Can she stand and support herself?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
She cant walk
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 14 days ago.

Ok, then this is a true emergency.

We' d worry about e.g. a slipped disc in her back, embolism or fracture of the spine.

She needs to see a vet for immediate investigation and pain relief.

Do you need the details for your nearest clinic?
