I am so sorry that Lenny is not feeling well. This injury has caused pain and it appears to be getting worse. For now, give Lenny aspirin at 5 mg per pound of his weight every 12 hrs. This will reduce the inflammation and discomfort until you can see your veterinarian for the diagnostics to determine the cause and appropriate treatment. Without the diagnostics, we do not know what is causing this and what is best for sweet Lenny.

Does that make sense to you?
