How can I best help you today, JACustomer?
It sounds like you've done the basic examination already. We would check:EyesEarsMouthSkin over the head and neckPalpate each limb for painCheck the ribs for painCheck the feet for painCheck the spine and tail for painIf you're seeing small abrasions, those can be cleaned 2x daily with a mild soap, water and soft cloth. Pat dry after cleaning and apply a thin layer of neosporin 2x daily.The fact that he is eating, drinking, urinating and defecation well, this is a good sign.He is likely limping due to tenderness. Although there's always a risk of bleeding, we can give aspirin to pets to help with discomfort in a pinch. Dosing info here: http://www.veterinaryplace.com/dog-medicine/aspirin-for-dogs/If the limping persists, it's time for an exam and your vet may recommend x-rays to be sure nothing is fractured.
