Yesterday at an outdoor Christmas Party, I sat down in a chair that was broken and both my Chi and I took a tumble. I was able to "toss" him to keep from falling on him, and he took a couple of rolls on the dirt. He did not cry out, and I picked him up to check him out. Nothing appeared to be broken and he was acting normal so I assumed all was well. Lots of kids were petting him, holding him, etc. and he was very docile with them (I made sure they were gentle). When we got home, he started acting funny. Walking like he was stiff, not wanting to be with the other dogs, staying curled up under the blankets, acting like he could not jump on the couch. Today he is eating and drinking fine, going out to the bathroom, but still is acting stiff and weird. I again checked out ribs, feet, legs, etc and got no reaction indicating a break or sprain. I gave him half a baby aspirin thinking may he is just sore, but I wanted to get you guys opinions. I don't want to overreact and spend money I don't have for the vet, but at the same time if he needs it, he needs it regardless of the money. What do you guys think? Give it another day, or take him to the vet now?
