Limping, miserable piggy

One of the girls has hurt herself running for cover. She’s limping on her back foot and looks thoroughly miserable. I’ve had a feel, there’s no obvious tender spot or swelling so I’ve given her metacam and put the food next to her. I thought I’d give it a day and see how she gets on because there’s probably not much the vet can do anyway.

Should I be doing anything else? Obviously if things get any worse, I’ll call the vet and I’ve got critical care in for syringe feeding if necessary.

How is she today?
Hopefully her foot has improved and she's back up to speed.

Much better thanks 70. Her hair still a bit wonky but she’s much brighter and running around again. I think in a few days it’ll be back to normal.
