Customer Question
Our 7 year old spaniel...
Our 7 year old spaniel cries when the other dogs bump her and especially when she wakes up or jumps down out of the car. She also has a dark discharge coming out of her eyes. She is eating and drinking and her nose is wet. The vet thinks it could be rheumatism, but we think it is muscular. It only stated this two days ago.

Do you have your dog on tick preventative? Are her joints swollen at all? Does she have a fever? Has she had any tests done (Lyme test, xrays) for this problem? Has she responded to the medication at all?

 

I can give you a much better answer with some additional information,

Dr. Karen

HI

No,her joints aren't swollen and she does not have a fever. She was dipped for fleas on 13 June at the doggy parlour. (all 8 of our dogs have the same treatment at the doggy parlour We will take her back to the vet tomorrow as they said if she is not better after the injection and the pills they gave her, then they would give her an anaesethic and do an xray. She seems to be very stiff this morning

Dog Specialist: Karen Purcell, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 years ago
If she was very stiff this morning, she is not responding to the anti-inflammatory that she is on. I suspect she may have a back problem (disk disease) which is common in cockers. Hopefully the xrays will provide the right information for her to get treatment.

Wish I could have been more help,
Dr. Karen
