Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry that Lola has been injured...it sounds like she was lucky to not have been injured any worse....
Most likely she has been bruised with some swelling and the fact that you cannot elicit pain by palpating these areas means that the injury is deep within the musculature. The best thing you can do for Lola now is to give her aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to reduce the inflammation to help her past this. Add 1 teaspoon per 20 pounds of her weight of mineral oil or vegetable oil to help her relieve her bowels. The pressure of having a bowel movement or urinating can be painful and Lola is probably holding this because of the pain. With the aspirin on board, this will help.
Have your vet check Lola if she does not improve within a day or 2. In most cases, this treatment is effective.
Does that make sense to you?
