Okay, so we called the vet and explained all of his symptoms in detail. The vet said that it sounded like he would be fine with a few days of just wandering around the field, and 4g of Bute a day. 2 in the morning, 2 at night. As he seems to get better, give him less. If there is no improvement in a week, call back. We gave him 2g today and he was definitely in less pain. No more pawing, no biting. He would just chill out. Not quite as active as normal, and would press his bum into the walls, but other than that, same old Cowboy. Eating and drinking normally.
I've looked at all the worst possible scenarios, and I'm seeing that it could have been a lot worse... He seems fine now, though. He will definitely be under a close watch. Thank you for your guys' input. It really means a lot.
