4 week old puppy fell off the bed

My 4 week old staffy x pup fell off the bed today. He was active prior to this and was playing with the other pups and fell about 3 feet. He cried a lot and now has gone very quiet and is just sitting on my lap. Is he old enough to sustain a small knock to his head without it causing any damage besides a slight concussion?

Sorry, but by now you realize it was not a good idea to put those puppies on the bed.  The pup can have a serious injury to it's head, neck or spine.  I suggest you get it to the Vet fir an exam.  There is no way to reassure you.

Probably NOT!  You need to get him to your Vet ASAP...Good luck & let us know how he is.....Karla
