I had a healthy dog until he went under for dental cleaning and tooth extractions. The tooth extractions went well, but two days later he developed pancreatitis. We got it under control with medication and low fat canned food. However, when we stopped the meds we noticed he wasn't turning his neck and his neck started throbbing. We took him in again to the vet. The vet x-rayed his neck and said he has a slipped disk. Question: Does anyone believe that the dental tooth extractions could have caused the slipped disk in his neck? They said that he must of had a degenerative disk in the first place. However, we have never had problems before. Because the vet gave us muscle relaxants and rimadahl to give for pain management, his pancreatitis flared up again. Now he is in the hospital on intravenous fluids and pain med injections. I just want to know anyone's thoughts on this? I really believe if he didn't have problems with his neck, the pancreatitis would have been controllable. But b/c of his "slipped disk" in his neck steroids is usually the treatment, but he can't have steroids b/c of the pancreatitis. I am very worried and I am starting to doubt my vet.
