Trent may be stiff and sore today. If you have any arnica it would be good to give to him to help with that.
Dear Trent - be careful! hugging


Agree with all above, arnica will be a big help while he heals!

And when he is feeling a bit better, in addition to the arnica, I would absolutely find a chiropractor to take him too to.

Just found this thread and am so glad there was a positive outcome. Sending many positive thoughts to Trent for a smooth and uneventful recovery.

I second this, even if it just winds up being an assessment with no treatment needed. Vets are now using laser therapy to speed healing of joint and soft tissue injuries. I'm sure he is pretty bruised and laser might be a big benefit.

Quick update - Trent's doing very well, if it weren't for the bandages you would barely be able to tell he was hit just yesterday. He is slightly stiff but as energetic as ever and trying to do laps around the house and engage me into several games of tug. No rough playing or running for this pup yet, though. I am amazed at how well he seems but am taking NO chances. We are doing a few walks on the grass (not on pavement/cement) and I am helping him stretch his legs and joints every so often but no running or tug-o'-war for him. Also impressed by the lack of emotional damage, had several cars drive by on our walk and no reaction from him. Tried to hop in to the car earlier when the rest of the family went shopping.

I stayed up all night with him and slept through the day while the rest of the family waited on him. Just got up a couple hours ago! We're going in for a check up tomorrow afternoon just to be sure of everything. I felt around for injuries again and besides those on the exterior, nothing seems to be wrong. smile

Have to say that I'm extremely angry with my younger sister, though. Before I assumed that Trent had shot out the door and forgotten to wait before given the "okay" as he was trained to, in his excitement. Turns out my sister LET him out the door and gave him permission to do so, thinking it would be nice to have him greet me at the car. I sure hope she has learned her lesson...

Also, a BIG thank you for the suggestions, the vet did say that arnica will be a good idea (he is stiff and sore today) and I will talk to them about chiropractor recommendations and even laser treatment tomorrow.

Glad to read he is doing well even if, understandably, a bit sore and stiff. It is very frightening when things like this happen.

Trent must be one solid dog to have an accident like that and maintain his cool.

It's clear why you love him so.

All of you, take it easy,

I would be pretty upset at sis too. I imagine she is very angry at herself as well. The important thing is that Trent will be okay. I think if it had turned out badly she would have a hard time forgiving herself. Give her a hug and forgive her and press on as Trent is. He has already forgotten it. hugging

Rei,
She meant well, it wasn't malicious. And Trent will be OK. Once you are reassured that nothing is broken, excercise will probably be good for him - keep him from stiffening up any more.

Oh wow! I just read this and what a scare when I first started reading. Then to see it was 9 pages long was even scarier. I'm so glad that there is a happy ending to this.

Thanks everyone, don't worry, I'm not holding a grudge towards my sister. My main concern stems from the fact that I will be gone next year and she will be one of his primary caretakers and is careless by nature. I sat down and had a long talk with her, I think she understands now. We have a fairly good sister to sister relationship.

We take him out on three walks a day, nothing too long, always on the grass rather than the pavement. He doesn't show any pain but I am concerned about the nails that were broken off/removed on his back paw especially. We also do stretching exercises several times a day.

Checked out great at the vet, we're looking at chiropractor recommendations right now!
