dachshund shoulder pain
i have a two year old dachshund who is acting kind of funny. she's eating fine, and her bathroom habits are normal. she doesnt favor either side when she walks and isnt vomiting or anything serious.

i think that she may have hurt her shoulder somehow. she is really lethargic, and while she is responsive to her name and other stimulii, she wont get up unless i pick her up.

she yelps when i apply pressure to her right shoulder. could she have dislocated it, or just strained the muscle? the bones feel okay to me, but i'm not a trained professional. i wouldnt think it would  be serious if she is walking okay. i iced the area last night and she seemed to feel better. should i just continue at-home treatments like that? what could be wrong with her? is it serious?

It would be best to consult your veterinarian about this.  It may not be her shoulder at all.  It could be her cervical spine, and a vet could access this best, and prescribe anti-inflammatories or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories.
