Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

I am so very sorry this happened! They do always seem to be underfoot and end up in the wrong location. This is one of those situations that is a medical emergency, especially since you note he is not walking properly. He probably has a fracture (pelvis, ribs, etc) and really must be seen right away. We need to be sure aside from possible fractures he is not experiencing any internal bleeding or having any chest problems (ruptured airways, blood in airways) which could become rapidly life-threatening.

I wish I could assure you all will be well at home, but I cannot. I must recommend take him right now to be seen on emergency.
