My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years.

Did he hit his head in the fall?

Are his pupils even and reactive?

Can he understand you when you speak to him?

How high was the fall from?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The fall was 30'. Since I sent the email he has gotten up and was able to go outside to urinate. He had trouble getting up on his hind legs -- however I do not think he has anything broken since we felt him all over and he did not flinch when we touched him. Not sure if I need X-Rays.

He does respond as I offered him a treat and he walked over to get it.
