Hi JaCustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today. I'm so sorry no other expert elected to take your question. I just saw it myself when I signed in.

It is very possible that in her struggles to free herself she injured a disc in the neck or back. If at all possible, I'd have her seen by your vet so anti-inflammatory medications can be used. See the following sites on disc issues.

At this point she does need to be seen by a vet.

I wished there was something you could do at home, but she needs to be examined to find out the extent of injury.
