i have a 16 month old staff/boxer cross yesterday he had diarrhoea

Customer Question

i have a 16 month old staff/boxer cross yesterday he had diarrhoea but was still energetic, eating and drinking ok. Today he has struggled to get out of his bed, he is shivering, tail bwetween legs and struggling to put any weight on one of his back legs. This leg is very warm to touch but I cannot see any swelling- my vet surgery isn't open for another 3 hours and I am very worried :( He eats random rubbish including poo recently on walks wonder if sudden illness is down to this?

I am sorry to hear you are so worried about Ralph. I am also sorry you did not get help with an expert sooner. I just came online and saw your question.
How is he doing? Do you still need help with him?
