Neck Issues

Some Deerhounds can develop mild-to-severe neck pain that isn’t apparently related to injury. Causes can range from the dog habitually sleeping with its head hanging off furniture or thick dog beds to structural problems in a neck vertebra to Cervical Vertebral Facet Joint Arthrosis to Steroid-Responsive Meningitis-Arteritis (SRMA). Consult with your vet should your dog have a problem.

    What are you finding is the best connection to a lead? Chest harness? “Gentle leader?”

      Jennifer — I am so sorry that this never got answered. I was never notified that this comment was here. Many vets recommend harnesses for dogs with neck problems. I am not a vet, but I wouldn’t think that a Gentle Leader collar would be good. I hope this helps at this very late date — once again, my apologies!
