he was bitten or fighting with another animal Report Abuse
If your dog appears to have been bitten or in a fight, you should contact your vet. If he was fighting with another pet, contact that pet's owner to be sure that the "other" dog is up to date on all shots, and to let them know your dog's status as well.

He got into the trash Report Abuse
If you caught your dog digging through the trash, make sure he didn't ingest anything hazardous--look for potential poisons like household cleaners, and for food debris like bones or chocolate, both are health hazards for dogs
