Thank-you for the extra information. I have a suspicion that your baby may have some back problems which is common in small dogs. The stairs may have been enough to aggravate the disks in the back to cause your baby to seem lethargic. The pine is one of the most tender and easily irritated areas of a dog's body. For this evening try keeping him very quiet and still. You can give him 5 mgs of Aspirin per pound of body weight every 12 hours, for a maximum of two days. I would see if you can get into the Vet in the morning to have him examined. The Vet will most likely give him a shot to help reduce any inflammation in the disk area. Joan jav917
You are welcome for the information. I would love an update tomorrow after your visit to the Vet. Joan jav917
