I am thinking of going to the hospital with my two year old dog Baby. He is a 70 pound VERY active dog...Lab/Pit/Border collie
mix. He is always happy and excited. We went to the park today and he chased his tennis ball for about 10 minutes and then we came home. I don't know if he has pulled a muscle
or what, but he is acting painful. He refused dinner, water. He did go outside and poop then came back in and went straight upstairs to his bed. His walk seems normal. He did accept a couple of French fries and is mildly interested in looking at the tennis ball (usually this is massive crazy "let me have the ball" behavior
" from him). So the thing that is bothering me most about all of this is his capillary refill time. It seems very slow...3 seconds, maybe 4 seconds? Should I watch him and see how he is in the morning? Does this sound serious?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No, but I just touched his back right leg and he cried a little bit. Would pain affect cap refill time?
JA: The Expert will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the two year old's name?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your two year old?
Customer: He is a healthy, very happy, excitable boy. No problems. okay.
