Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today

Thanks for your question.

Please take acetaminophen / tylenol for the fever. This should also take care of the discomfort in the side and back. All of these may be due to picking up the dog (though he is not heavy). I do not see anything significant at this point of time. Mild grade fever may be due tissue inflammation. If your fever rises or any new symptoms arrive; than you may call your doctor's office.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
