I feel horrible because he does it when I try and pet him also....on his beck, neck, belly...doesnt matter he yelps and i feel horrible...but he yelps when he's just laying there also so im at a complete loss. Vet said she thought flees possibly and he was yelping when they were biting him...but couldn't find any signs of flees on him so that doesn't seem right plus he's not itching at all. Ugh....so frustrated. I'm going to take him to a different vet and see if they have any answers. Thank you again for your reply!!
I definitely know about the frustration, and just how heartbreaking it is to know something is wrong but not be able to do anything to help them!
Zody would be just laying down, sometimes sleeping, sometimes not, and would have the pain. I've seen fleas cause a lot of issues, but never pain like what you describe, sounds like your vet is grasping at straws like mine was. Mine said it was anal glands, even after they had been expressed, Zody was still having pain, and I flat out asked about his back and the harness and filmed what Zody was doing so I could show him, he still insisted anal glands, I switched vets after I needlessly allowed him to flush the anal glands and was told they were not impacted, but to bring him in in a month to have them expressed again. All of that took place from March - May. Since May Zody has had his glands expressed once.
