Customer Question

I have a 2 and half year old Black Lab. I left him with a relative. Not his normal setting for a few days. She said he was great, ate, walked and ran well. When I picked him up and ran down the hard wood stairs to greet us in excitement. He seemed fine but about four minutes later as we were packing up, he began to shake and quiver. He arched his back and yelped like I have never heard him before. He has been fine since and swam and walked and ate. Also pooping on schedule. I have NEVER seen anything like this from him before. Should I see a vet?What are your thoughts?
