Customer Question

My staffordshire bull terrier had 2 falls last week, now is holding her head on one side and can hardly move her head. She has made an improvements and can now usually get up unaided but if she has been asleep for more than an hour it is as if her neck has gone into spasm & she has to be helped up, once she gets walking she is much better. She has been having Tramadol & Metacam since Tuesday and Diazepam since Thursday. She is happy going for very short walks. Looks very uncomfortable and her head seems very heavy.
I will take her back to her vet on Monday if she has not improved - but would appreciate your suggestions.
