Mom and Dad are worried about me. On Wednesday (10/10/12) I didn't come running downstairs to eat when I heard dad put my dish on the table. When my breakfast was ready dad called and called me but I just wasn't feeling like eating, I kind of hurt. When mom got up I went downstairs with her but I had a hard time with the stairs. I never felt like that before. I still didn't want to eat but mom and dad wouldn't be happy until I ate my breakfast so I ate it for them. Since then I can hardly go up the steps and mom or dad has to help me. Today we went to the dogtor and she said it is probably my back. She gave me a shot and some pills and told mom and dad if this works I will be going up and down steps and jumping up on them to be picked up again in about a week or so. Mom says to ask everyone for their prayers. Mom and dad are still worried, the dogtor said if this don't work I will need an xray and then....well mom don't like to think about what comes after the xray. So if my pals could say a prayer for me, I would appreaciate it so much.

Sending you lots of hugz & kisses, as well as our prayers. We hope you'll get well soon!
Cory Jo, I don't think I've ever met you before but I will say prayers for you. Hope the meds help you. Take care.
Quick, have your momma log into the below site as it is for dogs with back problems.
When I hurt my back the vet didn't think I would ever recover without surgery, and even with surgery, there was not telling if it would work or even make things worse. Daddy told her to put me down but at the last minute the vet decided to try a cortisone shot and pain pills telling daddy that let's give it another 24 hours and see how he does.
The next day I was walking, running and acting like my normal self. Back surgery isn't always the only answer.
One thing that is important is that you should not go up and down stairs or do any type of jumping ever again as if you hurt your back again you might not recover at all. Please check out Dogerslist and see what they advise.
Sending lots of POTP for you Cory Jo and try to stay quiet and rest your back. Momma had two doxies with bad backs and she had to crate them so they would rest.
Hoping you feel better fast Sweetie. Daxxy's do suffer from back problems like this. Hoping the rest will help but its probably going to be no jumping /running/anything much for longer than a week.. but if it gets you well........
