Q. My dog had surgery for tarsametatarsal sublux on her rear leg 8wks ago she walks on it but when she runs she only runs on three legs. Anything I can

A. You should see a vet to check if the leg heals properly. There can be some underlying medical cause of the problem. If your vet will exclude this you should try with proper physiotherapy that will help your dog to use leg again.
