My Boston terrier took...

My Boston terrier took a tumble off the couch and landed on her back. She seems like she is tired. She is a little over a year old. We went upstairs and she was sitting and just fell over on her side. I picked her up and she seems not completely normal but I am worried

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your dog. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

I did not see or feel anything abnormal when I went over her whole body

Will you please attach video of what you’re seeing? There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like http://www.imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. If you are located in the USA and texting pictures/video would be preferable, please let me know. There is an additional charge for this service but it can take the guesswork out of trying to get information back to me and facilitate a faster response.
