Dog jumped on lower right floating rib, heard a crack sound. Is it a rib fracture?

Our dog jumped onto and off of my girlfriends back the other day using her as a spring board. She is a 70 lb dog and landed on her lower right floating rib and the other paw by her kidney . She thinks she heard a crack and it was very hard for her to breath evenly, however there is no swelling or bruising , should we be concerned that the rib fractured or cracked?

Hi Dear
Welcome to the board of Health care magic
Dear friend you may be right.
But even if the rib is fractured, Nothing special but only painkillers are required.
X ray should be done to confirm the diagnosis.
Hope your query is answered.
