Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Harley. Is he any better today? I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I am also sorry you did not get help before now. I just came online and saw your question.

Please do not give him any more Motrin. It is not safe in dogs and can cause kidney failure if given too much. How much have you given him?

I am worried about internal injuries from your description. He could have a collapsed lung, broken ribs, a bruised liver or spleen, head injury, or kidney damage. He could be bleeding internally. It could be something that heals with time and rest, but it could be more serious.

If you look at his gums, are they a normal pink color or do they look pale? Can you get him to eat anything?

Let me know how he is doing and what other questions you have. Rebecca
