Good morning.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I would be happy to help you :)

This sounds like he has hurt his back.

You can try resting him today and giving aspirin at 10.0 mg/pound by mouth twice a day or you can take him to be examined and x-rays of his back taken

Is he able to walk normally- not falling over or scuffing his paws?

I gave him a little baby aspirin and it’s helping. He went outside for a walk.
