My friend has a white boxer bitch of approximately eight years. She has noticeably suffered increased pain recently, most commonly on waking and standing, causing her head to stoop and back legs to shake. Shaking her head sometimes causes pain and also when standing or turning her head to the side or walking up or down a step
(even a small step). Metacam hasnâ€™t relieved this pain, and the local vet is now prescribing steroids for two weeks. I guess we were prepared for WCS, i.e. a brain tumor, the vet says impossible to tell, and even with x-ray and treatment would probably be unchanged in any case. Is there anything else we could do for her pain? My gut feeling is arthritic pain between shoulders, but biggest fear as above.
