What to do about a hurt chihuahua leg?

Home More advice Pets & Animals

I have a teacup chihuahua and she is one and a half years old. My son and the dog were out side playing and the dog came in limping. I think I heard the dog cry, but I'm not sure. the dog will not walk on her leg and this is day two. I went on an internet site and read that others soak the leg with water and salt. I really don't know what to do and can't really afford the vet bill at this point in time. But I love her and don't want to risk anything; especially her leg! Day one I couldn't realy touch the leg, but day two she will let you touch and move it more. The paw looks pink instead of brown in one small spot; the leg is not swollen; and she doesn't cry but she licks it. Do you have an helpful advice? Even a cheap clinic in Milwaukee, Wisconsin? Please any word of advice?
