|Apollo is yelping like he is in pain for what seems to be no reason. Many things trigger these "attacks", he will be lying down dead asleep, move or twitch and then yelps like someone stepped on his paw. Often bending down to eat or pick up a boy also triggers attacks. Everything else seems fine, he is playful, eating and drinking like normal(other then the random pain), going to the bathroom normally etc. No change in his behavior either, he is still the same old Apollo he always is. To my boyfriend and I it seems like the pain could be in his back, shoulders or neck. We have tried to pinpoint the pain by moving his head side to side, up and down, around, pressing on his shoulders and back lightly to see if his reacts to no avail.
He has been to see a vet who couldn't figure it out, mostly because no matter what we did he would NOT yelp while we were there, of course right? He said Apollo must have pulled a muscle and to put him on rest. He was resting for 3 months, the most strenuous thing he did was go for on leash walks in an attempt to get some energy out(vet approved). It seemed to lessen and then come back for no reason and has not stopped to date. He has another appointment to the vet on Monday but was wondering if anyone else has had this happen so I could possibly make some suggestions to our vet.
Thank you in advance for any help!
