do you have any emergency vets open?  

if not, the most i’m comfortable suggesting is crate rest until the vet opens in the morning.  hopefully Dr. Magnifico will pop in with some other ideas for you.

i understand. i am not comfortable suggesting a pain medication, however, as i believe those formulated for humans may be dangerous for dogs…plus you haven’t specified breed/weight of your dog, and most medications are by weight.

i would definitely keep him quiet tonight, though.

good luck, Mae. keep him quiet tonight, get him in first thing in the morning. and get some rest, too!
