He 25 weeks old
Gum are pink
Ive check him no blood and does not yelp when ive checked him
He's also eaten ..drank some water..and played a little.
Thanks for getting back to me with this additional informatoin.When I read your question, I suspected that we might be dealing with a younger dog here because traumatic incidents of this kind often appear to affect them more "emotionally" than for older dogs.I suspect that his lethargy after the event was a result of the depletion of adrenaline which was triggered by the trauma of being attacked. He was most likely scared to death and who can blame him???? It's the fight or flight response and once the adrenaline leaves the body, then sedation/drowsiness is sometimes seen.He may be a little sore and stiff tomorrow even if he wasn't physically injured. If that's the case, he can be given Aspirin at a dose of 10 mg/lb twice a day as long as he's not vomiting or taking any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This drug should be given with food to avoid stomach upset.I suspect he'll be fine, especially since you can't find any injuries on him, given a little time.I hope this helps. Deb
