Struggling to walk

Our lab has been unwell with either an internal bleed from eating grass or a bug. The vet has given him 3 anitibiotic injections and a course of tablets to take now that he is keeping food down.

He hasn’t been eating much. Just a small amount of rice, chicken, turkey, scrambled egg. He has really started to struggle getting up and walking about. We aren’t sure whether he is weak from not eating properly in 3 days or if there is a bigger issue.

He had acupuncture a week ago and that was working nicely until this. He is on metacam and having his antibiotics. Can you think of anything else we can do to help him?

I would agree with Lyndsey that your vet needs to check him. They may want to do some blood work to check organ function and for signs of anaemia. They should be able to assess if pain is playing a part and may give you an alternative pain relief to use for now if there has been some GI tract bleeding
