My dog has somthing wrong hurts when you touch his back of legs and stomace.. you can move his legs so i know it has nothing to do with being hit. He shaking bad
Welcome to JustAnswer! I would be happy to assist you. I am a 2003 graduate from UC Davis and a Medical Director of a 4 veterinarian practice.
Very serious. if he is shaking/tremoring, this is strongly suggestive of more serious pain or nausea.
The only exception would be if he is suffering from a internal condition like Addison's disease, which can cause tremors.
Being hit by a car, doesn't necessary have to cause leg pain. In fact, many times we see a lot more "body" injury and internal injury from being hit by a vehicle.
Even if that were not the case, it is critical to get Oscar into a vet.
We don't know the source, but we know there is a serious problem that cannot be treated at home.
Difficult to say what testing may be indicated. Possible x-rays, or maybe even a possible blood and/or urine test.
I have even seen bladder problems like urinary tract infection or bladder stones cause these types of symptoms.
But, if shaking bad, even if intermittent not shaking, warrants emergency veterinary attention.
he ate sausage and eggs that my dad gave him would he possibly have food poising?
But, cause a severe gastritis or even pancreatitis? Yes, possible
Sausage is very bad for dogs. Even if some dogs can tolerate a small piece, it is very bad to give.
But, we can't assume anything.
Oscar is definitely uncomfortable.
yeah we cant get him to the doctor tell the morning is there anything that might help with pain?
Here's the problem. Even if I recommended aspirin, and he actually has stomach problems, you could make oscar significantly more ill.
I would be happy to recommend an antacid choice below, to try and help stomach distress, but not for pain.
To help settle the stomach you can use of the following, but not as a replacement for veterinary examination include 1.Pepcid A.C. (famotidine) comes in 10mg, 20mg, or 40mg tablets.
2.Prilosec (omeprazole). It comes in 10mg or 20mg tablets.
You can give it every 12 hours. You can give 0.5mg per pound of body weight. So, a 20 pound dog would get 10mg.
You can give in every 24 hours. You give 0.5mg per pound of body weight. So, a 20 pound dog would get 10mg
3.Zantac (Ranitidne). It comes in 75mg, 150mg, or 300mg sizes.
You can give it every 8 to 12 hours. You give 0.25 to 1mg per pound of body weight. So, a 20 pound dog would get roughly 1/3 tablet of the 75mg. Even with bigger pets, it is easiest to get the smallest size tablet. Even a 75 pound dog would only need one 75mg tablet.
4.Pepto-Bismol or Kaopectate
You can give it every 8 hours. The average dose is 1ml per pound of body weight, and that is the TOTAL dose for the day.So, if a pet weighs 30 pounds, they would get a total of 30ml a day or 10ml every 8 hours. This is dosing for regular strength Pepto-Bismol. If you use maximum strength liquid, give half as much.
okay thank you so much you really helped i will be getting him medical attention asap
