The only thing I can recommend is to keep him calm as you can and restrict his activity so he doesn't hurt himself any more before your vet appointment. Back injuries are very scary. Keep us posted on your vet visit. Hopefully everything will be ok. We'll keep you in our thoughts.

Get looked at by a good vet as soon as possible to make sure nothing serious has been done.

My dog had a similar thing happen. She doesn't do stairs, but somehow she got up several and decided to leap back down. She immediately started crying and was bent over, favoring her lower back. I thought 'oh, this is the end!' When I went to the vet they said she strained a muscle in her back. Kinda like what happens when you lift something heavy and strain your back. They gave her steroids, and now she's fine. Thank dog!

Oooh! Not so great. Hmm...I suggest putting him on a glucosamine chondrointin supplement because if nothing else it'll stop any of his other discs from slipping. Watch his weight, and don't let him jump up at all. He probably is reluctant to because it hurts, but keep an eye on his jumping. And sadly, he may need to stay off of the furniture because if he falls off there could easily be consequences. Good luck!

Crate rest and you might want to research on Dodgerslist.

I don't have personal experience but this might be a group that can help and educate you. I hope you have a crate or ex pen so you can truly rest.
