Unhappy Beamer had a fall :(

Hi guys..

Beamer had a bit of a fall this evening. He was in my sister in laws arms and he jumped right out and hit the floor kinda on his side. He yelped for a few seconds and then was pretty quiet. He was sleeping prior to this. So he was very sleepy... after the fall he was very sleepy and didnt want to do anything... not even play with his fav toy.. hmmmm

I'm hoping he is ok.. he does not seem to be in any pain right now?? But i'm sure that fall will leave a bruise of some sort...??

Anyone have any experience with falling?? HELP!!

I'm not sure what to do????????????!!!!!!!!

Thanks!
Ryan

Just watch him, if he is eating/drinking/playing/acting normal then I would not worry about. Kid fall off the bed all the time and are not rushed to the doctor. However, if he stops eating/drinking/limping/any thing out of the normal than I would take him to the vet. Good Luck

Keep a very close eye on him Ryan. When Sam's brother was almost 4 months old he was playing with another pup (Jack Russell) and was slammed pretty hard on the ground. He stopped eating and drinking and became very listless. He had badly brusied his lung. By the time he was taken to the vet (next day) there was too much fluid in his lungs, and poor little Casey didn't make it. Better to be safe than sorry.

Eh Ryan. Sorry to hear about Beamer and his fall. Radar fell from the couch before right onto his Bean (Head) and was fine. If he's anything like his daddy it'll take more than that to stop him. I hope all is well. Please keep us posted.

Thats pretty sad... hmmm
Well he did eat some.. and played for a bit... but now sleeping.. so I'm not sure what to look for if he isnt doing well?? Would you say that this sounds not to bad? If I took him in, what would the vet be able to do?

Thanks..
Ryan

Beamer will probably be just fine. Casey only slept. Didn't eat or drink. Wasn't interested in anything. They thought that he just over did it playing. The next day his breathing was laboured and a little weasy. Still not eating or drinking. That is when they decided to take him in. If Beamer is still alert and drinking and playing he should be fine. Just keep an eye on him.

Unhappy Beamie

Well, we decided to take Beamer to the vet after all.. I could tell he was not exactly right.

So turns out he got a slight dislocation of his back leg and a tiny fracture in the ball of the joint. Vet says he should be fine in about a week or so. No surgery or anything required. He gave us some pain meds aswell.

This cost us $385.. unfortunatly we did not get any sort of pet insurance yet. Oh well... This was a learning experience...

He is sleeping right now as the sedative for the xray knocked him out pretty good.

Thanks guys!
Ryan

I've got my fingers crossed that Beamer is just fine and the only thing bruised is his ego.

Pepper had a similar experience his first week here. I was standing behind the sofa when Pepper decided to jump from the back of the sofa up into my arms. Either that or he thought he was Velcro and would stick to my chest . Either way, I was talking to my husband and turned at that moment to face him. Pepper bounced off my arm and landed on the tile floor. I freaked. Turns out Pepper was just fine. A little peeved at me for not catching him, but no harm done.

Hopefully the same will be true for your Beamer.
