Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your pup took quite a fall, but pleased that she seems to have no ill effects so far. Things to watch for with a fall include:
I would expect her to be somewhat sore, but she should be able to get around using all of her limbs, and putting at least some weight on them, and she should eliminate urine and stool and be able to eat and drink normally.
If in doubt it is always best to have her examined by a veterinarian.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Yes, if you notice blood then she should have a hands on exam. Sometimes it can take a few hours for things to show up. But if she remains fine for 24 hours then she got really lucky and should remain so.
I am very encouraged by how normal that she has remained so far though.
Hello, I'm just checking in to make sure all is well with your pup or that you didn't have any further questions. Please let me know how things are going with her, thanks, ***** *****
