Symptoms of Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD)

Our dogs cannot tell us what they feel through words but a responsible and compassionate  dog owner can understand what a dog feels through their body language. I know when my dogs are sad, happy, excited, bored. I know they get depressed when we pack our suitcases for a trip they cannot go on. Hopefully we can rely on our own common sense and intuition to understand when our dog doesn’t feel well and take the necessary steps to help them in every way.

Symptoms of dog back pain include but are not limited to:

*Quiet, lethargic demeanor
*Stiff or hunched back
*Sensitive when touching the neck or back area
*Shivering or shaking
*Crying when moving
*Poor appetite
*Dragging rear legs
*Uncontrollable bladder and bowel movements
