Since you said it happened suddenly I would guess he maybe dislocated his hip somehow and it’s all swollen around it. Other possibilities may be an abscess or possibly he got like a hernia type thing and part of his organs moved into there? Totally guessing not even sure if it’s possible.

Is there anything he could've gotten his foot or leg stuck on? Looks like an injury of some sort but could also be an abscess from infection. Only a vet will be able to give an exact answer.

Keep us posted on what the vet says.
i’m not sure what he could have possibly done to obtain that type of injury, i hope it’s just minor swelling that can be fixed with vitamins or something but i’ll keep everyone updated on the what the vet says! never stop the calcium!!

I don’t think it’s a supplementing problem.

He may have fallen and still been holding on with that foot or got it stuck in something like that rope lattice.
