Q. My husband accidentally stepped on our applehead/terrier mix. He jas a little lump on his head and is moving slow. What do I do?

A. I would get your dog in to see a vet right away. He may have bleeding inside his skull or a fracture, causing him to move slowly. I would consider this an emergency.
