    I don't think grass could do that to him. It must be something else. Do you know your dog's vet's phone number?? If you do, call him right away!! He can tell you what to do, or maybe even come to look at your dog. If he can't stand up it's urgent.

    Please give him hugs for me. Please get better boy!! {{{HUGS}}}

    Hmm.. I don't know. Sometimes dogs eat grass to settle their stomachs or make themselves throw up. I would suggest just keeping him hydrated and keep looking for a vet..

    Keep him hydrated and find an emergency vet. Don't try to give him something to make him throw up because you don't know what he got into. Did you notice if he picked up anything on the ground outside and ate it?

    What color are his gums? Are they pale? This sounds similar to what I went through with my dog. She was very anemic. We still don't know what caused it and she's better. Have you tried finding an emergency vet? I don't think I'd wait till morning.
