Yes my posts need to be approved first because I am new.

He seems OK today, still a bit low. It's hot here in New Zealand and he has been swimming in his little paddling pool.

The vet did feel him all over. Yes, I will take him back after the holidays as it is time for his vaccinations in January.

AND yes my name is from that song hahaha.

Can you afford bloodwork? It will give you a baseline on what is going on in his body. At a minimum, I would at least do that.

I am glad that he seems okay. I think if it were me I would definitely find a way to separate him from the other dogs while you are not home at least until you are sure they are getting along okay 100% of the time. Dogs take time to figure out each other and it is best if that is done under your supervision. Maybe give Bruiser a bedroom during the day where he can stay by himself if no one is home?

I second that opinion. Keep Brusier safe when you aren't there. Maybe a puppy playpen would help. He'd be safe, and you could put the pen where most of the activity is, so he wouldn't fee 'left out'. He's feeling better from the pain meds, so it really seems as if he had been injured by the other dogs. Maybe he got 'rolled' which is exactly what it sounds like. My chi was injured when 2 neighboring jack russells got out next door. They rolled her over and over. Fortunately only 1 bite mark, but her eye got a huge corneal abrasion, and her ear was very sore.

I agree with this.

It just sounds so odd to me, like one of them did hurt him. I would keep him away from them for a while, and do the playpen thing when I'm out, but still giving him a place to hide inside it (like one of those enclosed cat beds).
Good luck, I hope he feels better.
