Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....
Did this happen last night?
If you press along his spine, does he act painful anywhere?
Is his head tilted at all?
Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
It's hard to say what is going on, but since he did have a fall last night, I'm tempted to believe that he may have a soft tissue injury or a pulled muscle of some sort.
Since he's going to the bathroom normally and holding his head at a funny angle, I think that this injury is probably located somewhere in his neck, but of course, without being able to see him, it's impossible to know for sure.
If this were me, I'd just monitor him for a day and see if it resolves with rest. If he's still acting oddly tomorrow, or if he gets worse during the day today, then I'd give your vet a call and have them take a peek at him, just to be on the safe side, but if this is a little pulled muscle, it'll resolve on it's own.
I hope this helps.
Yes, I think that's fine, but if it's possible, I'd keep him contained somewhere. If he ever uses a crate, then you could keep him in a crate, or if there's a room you can keep him in, that would be best so that he doesn't hurt himself more trying to jump onto or off of things while you're gone.
