Ask a dog vet and get answers to your dog health questions
Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question.
To make sure I understand, Jewels is the dog that got jumped on?
Is she limping?
Is she putting any weight on that leg? If she is, that means it is probably not broken.
She may have sprained her neck or pulled a muscle there. You can try applying cold packs for 20 minutes every few hours. If that seems to help, tomorrow you can alternate putting a cold pack on for 10 minutes, followed by a warm compress a few times a day.
This should help with the pain. You might need to keep feeding her and helping her walk/go outside until the pain gets better.
When was the last time she ate? Is she straining to poop? If she hasn't been eating, she probably doesn't have to poop.
I think if she is not eating on her own by tomorrow morning, I would take her in to the vet.
It seems to me that she is not eating because of the pain and because she is not eating, she is not pooping.
If she does have abdominal pain I would think about getting her to the vet sooner. You can also try giving her some over-the-counter Pepcid. For a dog her size, you can give a 5 mg Pepcid tablet to help settle her stomach.
