    DefaultJenica has some problems with her neck (?)

    Jenica is causing us some concern. For the last few days we noticed that something was off with her - she seemed slightly disoriented and very hesitant to go down stairs. She is always iffy about stairs, but this was more than normal. We had a few things that we looked at, but nothing really made sense until we finally noticed:

    She does not lift her head above back level. When we tried to give her a treat she would just ignore it or circle underneath the treat. When she would then try to go for it she would lift her left front paw and paw into the air, but still keep her head down. We tried to lure her head up and she was very hesitant to follow the treat (she would lift it very slowly and with lots of pawing into the air). So we made an appointment with her vet for later today. She does not indicate any pain if we touch and push along her spine, but she is a tank who does not show pain anyways. She still loves to roll in the snow and eats and drinks normally.

    Hopefully it is nothing serious. Any ideas or good thoughts would be appreciated.

    Prayers that it heals quickly and is nothing serious. Let us know what the vet says.

    Aw, poor baby, I hope she's okay. That would worry me too.

    Just saw this... I wonder what it may be? Hopefully it's something minor. Poor Jenica!
