I'm asking because if it is a simple hairline fracture, and not a clean break, you can just do cage rest (along with any neccessary med's) and hope for
the best. As long
split or serious fracture it
would likely heal
If there is a lump, you've got to worry about infection and inflammation (although infection is more serious, and WOULD need med's. The latter...you should, but with cage rest it may go down as it heals).
Ah, does Beckett put ANY weight on the paw at all?
