Q. My Golden Retriever is having neck pain. She wont move to the left she won't even walk to the left She has ear drainage Im treating with antibiotics.

Answered By

A. You need to go back to your vet. It could be just due to the ear problem but if it is that uncomfortable she needs pain relief as well as the antibiotics. It may also be a neurological problem. Don't leave it any longer as it sounds extremely painful. If your vet is currently closed I would recommend taking her to your emergency vet.
