Customer Question
Hi, I'm ***** *****...

Hi, I'm ***** *****. My dog chased a car this evening and may have been hit by the rear wheel. She seems ok - walking, no limp; eating, no throwing up; toileting properly. She has a minor scrape where she's lost her fur above one eye, area smaller than 1cm. No beldding of any kind. She is licking her front paws a lot but there's no damage and she's letting me touch her everywhere. But she keeps wanting to burrow - she is digging through the leaves under the trees, ripping up her beding and trying to hide behind a pillow on the couch. Other than that, she seems fine. I did call out emergency vet but they seemed to think she may just be a little stunned. What should I be looking for, worst case scenario?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Not much more to say. I guess I'm just concerned that I might have missed something when checking her over?

Thanks - we decided to take our dog to the vet. She is currently being seen by our after hours emergency vet (2.59am here). She seems ok but I just needed to make sure.

Fantastic, that was the best option. Let's hope she is fine.

Thank you for the update.
