Signs of intervertebral disk disease in dogs.
“While many dogs with spinal pain will vocalize, some may exhibit more subtle signs, such as tremors, difficulty rising or an altered body posture. Dogs with cervical pain often maintain a ventroflexed position of their head and neck. Dogs with thoracolumbar pain may have a hunched posture, while those with lumbosacral pain tend to keep a lower or 'tucked' tail position.”
