Then a few months later he went to sleep and woke up and was like it for about 2 hours so called the vets they said if he was still like it on a few hours bring him in and he was so they injected him with a sort of paracetamol and put him on some medicine he was fine tho as soon as we got into the vets! And then now tonight 3 weeks later he had a fall off of the sofa and he can hardly walk can anybody help me and advise me please I love my little man so much and panic I would let hun chew any of my shoes right now! x

    Might want to look into a second opinion with another vet.... Seems there might be more going on and really need an X-ray to make sure there isn't an injury

    I do not mean to be blunt, but maybe some steps would help so he would not be falling so much, it could damage this Precious Bulldogs spine.

    Agree with the last two posts. First, I agree you need to see a vet to insure nothing is broken/torn. Second, we have plastic/vinyl stairs for getting up on the couch, bed, and into our Toyota SUV. The stairs were ordered online by my wife.

    I would keep Bowe on limited activity with no jumping or running until you follow-up with a vet.

    I will keep positive thoughts that Bowe is alright.

    I agree w/the gang, I think that you need a second opinion… Also I would be VERY careful having him jump off the furniture, you may want to discourage him from doing that until he gets older and his growth plate is set.
