What can be done 15 lb shitz/yorkie mix who fell off my

What can be done for my 15 lb shitz/yorkie mix who fell off my couch arm and seems to have a neck injury. She is having muscle spasms and scared to jump up or down any more. I took her to my vet who I have used for about 7 yrs now and they did absolutlly nothing for her. No blood work, no X rays just gave me predisone 5 mgs per day and pain meds and Zantac in case other meds hurt her tummy! She has finished all her meds , but still has the neck spasms and obviously pain from or during spasms.? I don't know what to do for her? I gave her a quarter of a 1 mg Zanax it seemed to help her relax her neck. But I know I have 3 other dogs my 10 yr Lab has to have Zanax for anxiety attacks now so thought it would be OK to try it. She is only 4 yrs old , I don't know what else I can do???

If my boxer is on 10mg of prednisone twice per day, will it

If my boxer is on 10mg of prednisone twice per day for autoimmune, will it hurt her to miss a dose? I just discovered that her last dose was given this morning by my teenager. My vet will not be open until morning. She usually gets each dose around noon and midnight. My dog has been on prednisone since February. She started at 30mg twice per day, but as her numbers improved the dose has been decreased.

My German Shepherd (3 years old) and my lab (10 years old)

Hi, my German Shepherd (3 years old) and my lab (10 years old) got into a fight over a bone. My lab ran and then he went to the top of the stairs, sitting, hips were lifeless, and he passed out. He was shaking a bit and peed while he was laying there. It lasted a few minutes. Now he is walking and acting normal. Should I take him to the vet?

Me and my wife adopted a 2-3 year old German Shepherd Dog

Hello, my name is***** and my wife adopted a 2-3 year old German Shepherd Dog from our local Animal Rescue League. They said the dog had been to obedience training and was given up by the original owner because they did not have time for it. The dog was adopted by a young couple then brought back the next day because it attacked (knocked over is the word the vet used) there large breed dog. They didn't say what kind of dog the young couple had they said they just let the GSD loose in the back yard and it immediately knocked over there dog so they returned it. We adopted the dog on 7-11. My wife was super excited. We took the GSD to petsmart got him all the necessities had zero problems around other dogs or people, brought the dog home and played with him, groomed him, fed him, and put him in his crate and went to sleep. The next morning my wife got up early to take him for a run, which went fine, she did say he drug her a lot. Then she proceeded to play a little fetch and go over simple commands Sit-Stay-Down. After this she started taking selfies with the dog while she was sitting on the ground. The dog was fine until the last 4 photos in sequence her staring face to face eye to eye with the dog. Same photo again but dogs eyes are a lot more alert (which she did not notice), next photo her head next to his him looking away from her, next photo the GSD biting her on head, next photo GSD biting her on head. After that the dog pinned her down and she was just guarding herself as she said the dog was attacking her and she screamed at that point I ran outside the dog immediately hopped off of her and came over to me wagging his tail with a fine temperament. My wife is deathly afraid that the dog has a problem and that she will no longer to be able to master the dog. She is afraid that since the dog exerted his dominance over her that the dog will always be dominant over her. Any advice or help you can give that I can show her? We have had zero incidents since then but she has refused to be around the dog.
