My dog is an American Bulldog, 75lbs he was hit by a car. Not sure where on his body the impact was, but the car was not going very fast. My dog has a few bloody scraps on his foot pads, non tender when I press his abdomen or ribs. He is responsive, awake and calm. He is walking and does not appear to have any broken bones. After his initial trembling he is acting as normal.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

It only looks to be road rash on his front paw and back paw on the same only on one side of his body

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Staley 2 1/2

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Staley?

He did appear to be incontinent of urine at the time of the accident
