Miniature Schnauzer Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 3/6/2007
I have a miniature schnauzer. She is 4 1/2 years old. A few months ago we put tile down. I was thining my 'little girl' (that's her name) maybe tried to jump on my daughters bed and fell and hurt her back. I took her to the vet but they just looked at her and poked on her with their finger. The Dr didn't know what was wrong but said it should go away. Well, it went away. Now it's back and I know she didn't get hurt. When she hurts, she cant go up or down steps, she whines a lot and pants hard off and on. She also moves like she is shivering, it's not a seizure, but maybe a spasm of some kind. And she won't eat. It's been 4 days now. She will drink though but wont eat a thing. And she has a hard time going poop. Anyone have any ideas on what might be wrong with her. Thanks so much.

3/7/07 Please go to another vet. Get a second opinion. I know it sounds crazy but there are Chiropractors and Accupunturist that will work on dogs. It sounds to me like she has a injury that needs treatment. Boil chicken, brown rice, carrots and celery and try to feed to her. This always works when I have trouble with my moms wanting to eat. Good Luck! Donna
