Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) How old is this puppy? 2) Any vomiting or diarrhea? 3) How is his demeanor? 4) Can you attach pictures of the bruising? 5) Any history of illness or injury? 6) Has this puppy had any vetting?
Can you attach pictures of the bruising?Do you know how this happened?Can you attach video of him shaking his head?
I am unable to offer a call at this hour, JACustomer. I am happy to help you further online, however.
Do you mind sharing? This may help me to assist you further in knowing what trauma was sustained and where. Obviously with injury sustained over the back end, we must worry about pain (which it sounds like he's experiencing) but if the injury was bad enough it also could have caused bladder and intestinal injury which would keep him from wanting to eat or drink. In cases like these, ER visits are warranted otherwise the pet may not survive.
