just got a diagnosis on my 6 year old girl for this. the x-rays showed haziness on the last disc sacrum area near the tail. she has shown signs off and on with one of her back legs. she will lift one back leg in pain when she jumps up on something or does steps to fast, she will keep it lifted maybe a minute or two, then it slowly goes away. almost like when she puts to much pressure on that area. she seems to go on walks fine. really odd to me because i have had past gsd's with spinal problems and they never just lifted the leg, they would scuff the feet. we have not had an MRI which would show more, we are trying some alternatives first. Laser therapy was one that was recommended along with chiro and accupuncture. never have done the laser before wondering if anyone has had success with it. they put her on anti-inflammatories and it really didn't seem to help. she also has had tick tests.
mainly wondering about the laser stuff. we will be giving it a try.
