|Happy Birthday Missy!
She looks great!
Well, I got Lizzie in to see the vet. He thinks she just re-aggravated the old injury. He says Lyme would be very very unlikely. He also says he doesn't think it's a bulging disc because she has none of the neurological symptoms, and that dogs typically have pain when moving their head up/down, not left/right when there is a disc issue. He did not recommend x-rays because it would only show a "big" problem, such as a tumor, and wouldn't show soft tissue damage very well. He also said that it's difficult to read neck x-rays because the vertebrae are shaped differently from dog-to-dog. Liz is now on an anti-inflammatory and a muscle relaxer (and totally passed out). If it happens again, THEN we will go from there!
In other news, my foster dog just barfed up another pair of socks!!! ugh!!!!! I don't know when he is eating them! I keep him crated at night/when I'm gone. I keep the bedroom door shut so he can't get in my hamper. When I shower, he comes with... seriously... evil dog...
