Is she eating and drinking normally? If so, she may have sprained a leg area or even have a thorn or such in the foot. Use a magnifying glass to check for that. Have you gently manipulated the leg? Felt for heat. A warm epsom salts soak may also help. Without being there with you, that is the best I can do just now.
