Customer Question
I have a 7...

I have a 7 week old puppy german shepard. He jumped out of a shopping cart when we were leaving the pet store while walking too the car, he landed on his back.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

When he got up it seemed like he was limping a little on his back left leg, it just happens 5 minutes ago

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Bailey, it's a male

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bailey?

No that's all

Given the opportunity, does he walk on that leg?

Is he vocalizing at all?

He's really not vocal yet but he is giving me kisses and playing with me

Yeah, he doesn't seem too be limping anymore
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 10 months ago

Keep a close eye on him. If the limping begins again, he will likely need to see a vet to rule out a fractured/bro***** *****mb. If he does not show any additional signs of injury, chances are he was tender for a short while and it's subsided since the injury.
