9 MO old female Maltese
/mix has begun having what I would describe as sudden jerks or twitch in her hind quarter they occur for a quick second several times a day was just surfing to see if I could figure out what it is as my vet just up & left town w/o notice & closest vet is an hour away.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?
Customer: I posted above do you see my post?
JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: Her back end jerks suddenly for a sec several times a day she doesn't yelp or cry out
JA: OK. No obvious pain. Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
JA: Is the dog eating normally?
JA: OK. No appetite problems. Is the dog having trouble peeing or pooing?
JA: OK. No obvious problems there. How is the dog behaving differently?
Customer: No difference
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Almost 9 months old. Her name is Chyna
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chyna?
Customer: She's up to date on all her shots. She hasn't been spayed yet my vet ran out on us. She's very active & did break her tail several months ago I also found out after she was gifted to me after the loss of my 11 yo Yorkie, she came from a puppy mill
