Last night I had my puppy (9 weeks) in my arm and I went to close the shed door. Well, apparently she was spooked by the door and jumped out my arm about 4 feet down and ran to the house. Now she isn't walking on her hind left leg. I am bringing her to the vet this morning, but anyone know about how much xrays and all that cost? Do they offer payment plans?

It's cheaper to cut it off. Then you can say you have a rare Mexican Tripod dog.

Before you take him in take a look at his paw -- my dog had a similar problem and sympton -- after a lot of money we found out that it was not a sprain, break or dislocation -- there was a piece of glass stuck in-between the toes (if thats the correct term for inbetween the paws) -- and thats why she was putting absolutely no weight on the leg --

Don't take a chance, have the up checked out...thier bones are soft at earlier ages, and they can be damaged easily.

The way people sue at the drop of a hat today, maybe you should sue the Garage Door company for pain and suffering. :smilielol:

Is that you in the avatar?

Right now, yes.

Final bill was $245. The Xray came back with no break. There is a slight seperation at the joints and I was given anti inflammatory medicine. Will have to try and keep her calm for the next few days.

So basically, the vet couldn't do anything.

first insurance now this....

2010 cant come soon enough eh?

fwiw, I have a golden that is allergic to ragweed and requires "maintenance shots" every 14 days - shots last about 2 months - $150 a vial and special "sensitive skin" food at $56 a bag.( feeding two full grown goldens lasts about 2 weeks) My first reaction to the vets diagnosis...."it's a dog"...:)

But you do what you gotta....

we have found vet prices to be all over the place. We have one in our neighborhood that is four times higher then other places. Start asking other pet owners for references before you need one again. Also...avoid the 24 hour animal hospitals whenever possible. Prices are normally two to three times a normal vets office. We have learned the hard way.
