Default Hurt Leg

Hey so my little girl all of sudden isn’t putting any weight on her front right leg. She’s still eating and drinking and going on her wheel (although not as fast or as long). I’m wondering if maybe she just hurt it coming off or going on her wheel and will be fine (as she’s not hissing or anything if I touch it and she has moved it when I’ve picked her up and held her tummy up) and will be fine in a few days?? Any input would be helpful as it’s starting to give me nightmares that something is going to be very wrong 😞

If she's hurt her leg the wheel should be removed to prevent any further damage its like when we hurt our legs we need to rest them, so by taking away the wheel she has to rest hers more, so if it was me I would take out the wheel leave it another 2 days and if still no better then go to a vet and get them check it.

I think that you should remove her wheel and monitor the leg for a few days. Also, check if there is anything stuck in it. Or maybe you clipped her toenail too short and it is hurting her? If she is still limping after a week, I would call a vet and ask. I know vets can be expensive, there are also online vets that only cost like $5 and you send them a video of your pet and then they tell you what they think is wrong. Hope her little leg gets better!!!
