Hi- My 5 year old chi male has been exhibiting symptoms of yelping and moaning predominantly in the early to late evening and in the morning. He has also been scratching his neck and face pretty often, and last night his neck was jerking some. I have taken him to 3 different Vets and I have gotten diagnoses of eating something he shouldn't have, food allergy, and now some type of phantom pain that they can not find a reason for. I have read some information on syringomyelia and it appears that it is rare, but has been known to happen to some chihuahuas. My current doctor said that she doesn't believe that my chi has this illness, but these symptoms he is exhibiting are some of the symptoms of syringomyelia. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that has a chi or had a chi with this illness. The doctor gave me anti-inflamatory and a pain medication to treat my chi to see if he gets better. If anyone has any first hand/experienced information regarding syringomyelia with their chi I would appreciate the help. Thank you.
