If your puppy is sick, then when you phone the vet for an appointment, you need to say that it can't wait until then. All vets leave time slots for 'emergencies'. Tell them it's a puppy, that it's not well, that its leg hurts, and that it needs attention today. And if that doesn't work - do two things. One, go to another vet, and two, post the name and location of the vet that won't see your puppy on this forum - we'd love to know.
