My first time posting. I have a 6 yr old lab/rot mix and he is having trouble ( i think ) with his neck. it's lke he wont raise his head up and he is keeping his tail between his legs and when he does lie down he shakes. Does anyone have any idea what is going on?

I think you need to get to a vet and have them make a diagnosis...Any type of significant change like that would be worth the trip...Especially considering the symptoms you described...Please let us know how you make out!!

I agree. Your dog is obviously in pain. Neck and back pain can be musculo-skeletal ( ie. a simple sprained muscle or serious ruptured disc problem) but it can also be symptoms of disease and illness such as meningitis. Let us know how you make out ...and WELCOME!!
