LaFlaca Posted February 25, 2016 Share Posted February 25, 2016 Wendy had an episode of shaking in her hind legs after playing with my son's dog last Saturday.. At first I thought it was just from the exertion. After all, the girl is 10 years old! The shaking stopped as suddenly as it had started but then started up again a while later. Wendy was obviously in pain. Luckily, we had a routine vet visit scheduled for that day. The vet took x-rays and found that the L6 vertebra was slightly out of place - lower than the rest - and there appears to be some calcification. Wendy was put on Tramadol as needed and Robaxin for 7 days. By the time we got home, she was fine so I did not give her the Tramadol but will give her the full course of Robaxin. The vet said to keep her quiet for a week or so and preferably not to let her rough-house any more. What do you all think about this shaking/pain? Muscle spasm? Pinched nerve? I really value your opinions and input. Thanks! Quote Irene ~ Owned and Operated by Jenny (Jenny Rocks ~ 11/24/17) ~ JRo, Jenny from the Track Lola (AMF Won't Forget ~ 04/29/15 -07/22/19) - My girl.
