Has anyone ever gone through this? The vet said it was not unusual but it really scares me! For about a week now Kobi hasn't been acting himself. He was eating and drinking ok, pooping ok. He was somewhat lethargic, not playing as usual, and yelping every now and then for no reason that I could see. So today we went to the vet. He has a ruptured disc in his neck. It could be many things that have caused it. Rough playing with the puppy and twisting the wrong way, jumping off of a chair, or a bed and hitting his chin on the floor, or sudden tugs on the leash (that's not it, he is trained without a leash). Good news is after 10 days of medication, it will be healed and he can resume all activities. Bad news is, he is not allowed to go up or down stairs, even the few to get to the backyard. Dr. said he will feel better tomorrow but it is absolutely necessary to keep him still or he could get paralyzed. A long 10 days ahead of me keeping an active hav quiet...........wish me luck!
