Customer: cervical issues but his shows different signs than when that bothers her. Kylie
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Great Dane?
Customer: About a year ago she couldn't get up but it was like her legs fell asleep much like ours and once she regained feeling she was fine. I thought that was this initially but it's completely different. I just have her previcox

She was anxious and wide eyed, panting a lot and now is licking a lot. (Not to say she doesn't lick a lot every night) but she is licking in a place she normally doesn't. When she had to walk up a small set of stairs to come in the house she lost her balance enough that she fell on her butt. Things like this stress her out and she pants a lot.
