Q. My toy chiuaha has a very hard neckk fromhis ear ito sshou! Ders and acts like his headhurts. His left eye gets puffy at times andhe sitshunched over

Answered By

A. Not sure that the two conditions are related, it would be interesting to see a picture of the eye itself. From your description it does look like he has a stiff and sore neck. Do you know of any injuries that occurred to him ?It's hard for me to say if it is a problem just affecting the muscles in his neck or if there are more severe problems affecting the bones or the nerves in that area. I would definitely have him checked over by your vet.
