Have Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet Online.
Hi Michelle, I'm Dr. Deb. I will do my best to assist you today. I'm sorry that Rocky isn't feeling well.I do have a few questions to ask about him first, if you don't mind:1. Do you have a thermometer so you can take his temperature?2. Can you tell me the color of his gums?3. Does he seem painful when you touch him anywhere on his body? Spine, legs, abdomen, etc?4. No vomiting or diarrhea, correct?
5. How much does he weigh?There may be a slight delay in receiving a response since I have to type up an answer to you.Thanks for your patience. Deb
I do have a thermometer, how to with a dog?

3. have touched , rubed all over does not give a reaction that it hurts
have him up and walking is not his normal, slow and seems a little disoriented, his back is hunched,, i think, my husband disagrees about his back.
4. No vomiting, NO diarrhea
5. 40 to 50 pounds
just walked again, did a little better. seems his rear left leg, he looks to me for approval as he moves, and is slow. Rocky is normaly very frisky.

I will close monitor Rocky and let you know. Years ago I had a dog Casy (Male) that got up one day and couldn't walk,, by the next day he was leaning on the walls to get through a room, we had to put him down the third day. This morning I was sure Rocky was going down fast,,, this afternoon he is moving a little better, actually alot better considering we had to carry him out this AM he could not get up. When he looks at me , and he looks deep in my eyes,, I can see he knows something is wrong. Rocky is my heat blanket always on me! Grandkids LOVE him.. Thanks for your help today. Sincerely, Michelle
I hope you'll keep me posted about him. Even after you've rated (if you do, of course), we can still continue to communicate at no additional charge to you. I can also send you a follow up email in a few days to which you can respond when you have the time to do so.
Good luck. Deb
