a while back i posted about a couple of episodes indy had of yelping in pain at night. we've started the process of elimination to see if this is SM related.....going slowly at the moment which is fine. he's had blood tests (clear), is due to be x-rayed in a couple of weeks, and is on metacalm to see how that affects him and we've had no problems since.
i've noticed that indy twitches his head a lot---he has always done this and it is only recently that i have started to wonder if it could be associated with SM.
the thing is that indy does a little head twitch quite often, but it is almost always accompanied with a little sniff and often a little sneeze. it is exactly what humans do if they have an itchy nose. he usually does it first thing after coming out of his crate or xpen. i'd come to associate is as part of his waking up routine-----stretches, couple of sneezes/head twitches and sneezes and tail wags.
my dad sneezes everytime he goes outside into the bright sunlight and my husband sneezes everytime he has an xtra strong mint so i had always thought of this as one of indy's cute little quirks, but i just wanted to make sure that i am not ignoring a serious sign that something is wrong. apart from the little sniffs he doesn't seem to have allergies???
i watched the SM videos and didn't see anything like this. do any of you have thoughts on this or does it look/sound familiar?
