I was just looking up sx's punctured lung and ruptured

Customer Question

I was just looking up sx's for a punctured lung and ruptured bladder in a dog. My son's dog fell off the back of his truck. He has taken him to a vet tonight who says he doesn't have any fractures, but they want to keep him overnight to r/o any complications. The dog has not voided since the accident (app 2 hours ago) They mentioned the possibility of a ruptured bladder and maybe a punctured lung (although he isn't having any dyspnea or act as if he is in pain when hr breathes. The charge will be 1300 dollars in addition to the 670 he has just paid and quite frankly he can't afford it. Neither can I or I would certainly let him have the money. I guess we will just watch him close tonight and if anything looks suspicious, we'll take him back.
