My dad totally called it last night. Beau did the same thing years ago over a pulled muscle.

I have never had such non-pain tolerant dogs.

Just a thought. Summer is "older" if I remember correctly, right? Could it be a calcified disc in her back? Ma'ii behaved the EXACT same way before he was diagnosed.

Either way, hope she get's better soon.

They do not think it is IVD/calcified disk but if she doesn't eat better after rest thats our next thought. I really hope it's not :/.

They didn't think it was because she's moving very well and not ataxic or anything. It's also very clearly on one side of her neck. I'm still a little worried about it but we will just wait and see.

The way the vet explained it to me is depending on the location of the calcified disc, the dog can still move normally. Ma'ii's is located more towards his lower back, and with the exception of some yelps once in a while with sudden movements, you wouldn't know he has it.

I hope that's not the case with Summer though. It's something I wouldn't wish on any dog or owner. Hopefully the vet is right

Yeah the vet was saying that since the pain is definitely high in the neck that there would likely be issues neurologically. It is right by her left jaw area/behind her head.

I'd imagine if the pain is more in her neck area, but she can move around fairly normally, then it isn't a calcified disc. I had a beagle years ago who had a calcified disc in his neck, and he could barely walk or lift his head. It got so bad, we had to have him euthanized.
