Squealing

From Liz with dog Zak
Breed: Pug

Pet Symptoms:

My pug tried to jump on our settee earlier on today and squealed loudly when he did as though he had pulled something. Since then his tail is straight but he is eating and is able to walk around. However, when you touch his back leg in a certain way he squeals and also if you pat his head to hard. What could this be?

Tried:

Nothing.

Our Advice:

Thank you for your email. If Zak’s symptoms have not improved I would suggest you make an appointment for him to be checked over by your local vet. Pain can be due to broken bones, but also due to sprains and bruises.
