Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Doug. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Is he eating, and drinking? If you check his gums, are they pink in color?

He may be having neck pain, or fever, or this may be some sort of neurologic condition. Can you take his temp with a thermometer?

I can't get a temperature but his gums are pink and he is eating and drinking once I bring it to him
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Pink gums are a good sign. So is eating and drinking.

He sounds like he needs pain medication, and the safest and most effective pain drugs for dogs are by prescription. Since he is eating, you could try aspirin; how much does he weigh? You can give 1 low dose (81 mg) aspirin per 15 to 20 pounds of body weight, twice daily with food. If there is any vomiting, do not repeat it. Do not give ibuprofen or Aleve, or Advil.
