Ask Dr Claire

My child dropped our puppy on the head on the tiles and I heard a bang, will she be ok?

It depends on which part of the head suffered the impact, and the severity of the knock.

Their skulls can fracture just as ours as. Check her closely and if she is showing any unusual behaviour at all such as being quiet, dull, wobbly, walking unusually, her eyes look different, she is vomiting, staring into space etc.

If so she immediately needs to go to your nearest bricks and mortar veterinary clinic for a hands on examination and have treatment as required.

If you’d like to chat in person, you can get a vet on a live video call or start a chat to discuss in more detail now.
