8 Week old puppy got stuck in his pen and now unable to put weight on rear legs. Plea

Hello guys and gals. So my 8 week old lab/akita puppy. Got stuck in between were the opening for the playpen is. He sleeps in a heated shop in his play pen with his bed and crate. So I put him in there at 12pm on friday night i went to go get him out at 7 am the following morning. I found him pinched in between where the play pen opens. He was squeezed hard in there right in front of his hind legs. I helped him get out and found that he could not use his back legs. I immediately called my local vet and took him in. She found that he has feeling in both rear legs still and can poop and pee still. And he does not mind being touched any were so i dont think he broke anything? So she gave me some inflammatory and pain relievers. It is now sunday and he can sort of stand on his rear legs now but they give out and he then falls or drags him self around. I do not know what is wrong or what i should do. any help please. I am worried.

After two days if he's collapsing on them I would be concerned and take back to the vet. He may have nerve damage from being pinched / loss of blood flow

analgesic medications for pain can be used as he probably feels some numbness, pain, tingling, etc and i can imagine it would be quite uncomfortable and painful. you'll have to discuss this with your vet once they examine it. if he's dragging his limb though, definitely take him to the vet. i'm really not sure, its pretty difficult to tell you my opinion just from a description over the internet, and i'm no professional! your vet will be able to tell you the outlook of his limb and whether he will regain feeling / movement of it

i hope so!!

likely spinal injury... but if getting better, might be a good prognosis over time... still have vet keep rechecking.
