I have a 10 year old miniature pinscher. I let him outside one nite and he gave two yelps and i immediately let him in and he came in shaking..like how they shiver when they're cold, and it was almost non-stop. The next day we took him to the vet, and they said back problems and said let him rest for 2 weeks. The next day he was about the same, then the day after he was shaking and panting and breathed really fast, so we took him back to the vet. This time the vet gave muscle relaxants..but they dont help, and neither do the pain killers he had from before. He also will not go on the carpet, not even to eat his cookies like he usually does and he only lies on his stomache and not his side. Anyone have any idea what this might be?! **He's also been eating and drinking well..and doing his usualy business outside**

Has he had any spinal X-rays?

Where are you located? I know an animal chiropractor in Montreal.
