We had a weird thing with Button recently: Rob got home from work and he was OK for a bit, then started acting weird, then started screeching whenever he touched his right elbow to the ground. I brought him to the vet and they did an ortho exam and found (oddly) that he wasn't presenting any signs of sensitivity in his extremities or joints. But they thought he was tense and sensitive in his neck/upper back.
So far, we are resting him and medicating him with muscle relaxers (methocarbomal?) and Metacam. He is also getting some cold laser treatment. If no improvement in 2 weeks, we will do X-ray of his whole front end to look for issues.
In the meantime, we have a lot of sleepy Button, who loves laying around in the sun:
Anyone have experience dealing with neck/back issues in dogs? We are hoping that's all this is. Since starting meds, no symptoms. Just a lot of rest, which is what the doc ordered.
