Spinal curve in 8 year old aussie
i have a healthy 8 year old aussie who is beginning to show an exaggerated upward curve in the lower portion of his spine.  he is still very active ie: plays ball and frizbee, jumps on furniture, etc...   i have mobilized him and he shows no signs of pain.  is this a sign of aging or should i bring him in?

could be a weakness or instability at the thoracic lumbar junction.  a simply lateral x-ray would tell you a great deal - even though he is showing no outward signs.  I think you should know what's going on there - anatomically.
