pinched nerve pooch
I took my 11 yr. old (at least got him from the spca that long ago) to the vet today she thinks he has a pinched nerve. I have some meds and he is supposed to rest for the week. He is a lab/border collie mutt. I forgot to tell her that he also is very picky about which water he wants to drink... i.e. he does not like the water from our well and prefers rain water... would that have anything to do with his condition. The dogs front right leg is also swollen and he has gained 5 lbs since last visit.... she also indicated if he does not get better it could be something with the lymph system.... would the water thing have anything to do with the limping, swelling and shaking?
Thanks in advance
