Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years.

Did he hit his head in the fall?

Are his pupils even and reactive?

Can he understand you when you speak to him?

How high was the fall from?

Joan

The fall was 30'. Since I sent the email he has gotten up and was able to go outside to urinate. He had trouble getting up on his hind legs -- however I do not think he has anything broken since we felt him all over and he did not flinch when we touched him. Not sure if I need X-Rays.

He does respond as I offered him a treat and he walked over to get it.
