I have an 8 yr old ridgeback and we are trying to figure out

Customer Question

Customer: I have an 8 yr old ridgeback and we are trying to figure out what his ailing him He got into our open trash can yesterday afternoon. This morning he started whimpering, shaking, ears are back, tail between his legs and obviously in discomfort. He got into the trash two weeks ago and presented with the same symptoms about 12 hours later. We brought him to the vet and they said it wasn't anything GI . . . it was his back. We went home on Tylenol and muscle relaxants for a few days and his symptoms improved greatly. We started the same med regimen this morning. He won't eat his dinner (never happens) and won't even eat rice in chicken broth.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I ran with him yesterday 1.5 miles. Ran with him today 1 mile. I ran with him prior to the episode a few weeks ago.

Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

Are you still looking for a response for your question? Can you tell me exactly what the prescription for Tylenol says? This is not just regular Tylenol, is it? How much does your dog weigh?
