My 11 yr old GSD all of the sudden seems hesitant to move(

Customer Question
My 11 yr old...

My 11 yr old GSD all of the sudden seems hesitant to move( he was literally fine at 5 am, almost unwilling to move now, cries when you touch the left side of his head/ neck/ shoulders)

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

German Shepard dog

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the German shepherd dog's name?

There’s no noise,

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the German shepherd dog?

The Dogs name is ***** ***** currently receives chiropractic work and is in CBD oil/ joint supplementation for about 3 years with great success, don’t think this is related

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
