mini tail dockin

Thank you so much for your response...i have actually videotaped her having one of her "episodes" to show the vet..i don't think it is neck/back spasms since she is really not an active dog...just short walks..since she is on the gabapentin she is pretty lethargic..she was spayed at 4 months..she does have an inverted vulva but it has been checked..she has had xrays for stones and an ultrasound for everything well as blood work, urine work etc..the internist had another mini who had the same symptoms and they thought it was phantom pain from the docking..she does look at her back area alot...but no scooting or licking..just hoping someone could give me some input...

            I hope you get some clear answers and that your dog is soon on the road to recovery! {{{{}}}} This board is very quiet these days, but I hope you will let us know.
