Our expert says:
It is possible that the leg is continuously painful (as suggested by the limp) therefore leaving it unattended is not fair on the dog. If you cannot afford to have the work done at the veterinarian, at least consider taking it to a welfare organisation where they employ vets. Please try to have a vet look at it again, in all fairness to your dog.
