Latest update...mom took me to see the orthopedic doctor today after I was yelping more often since last week. She didn't see anything on the x-rays that my normal vet sent her so she wanted to do an ultrasound today and then next would be a cervical MRI. (she wanted to do the ultrasound because it was an less invasive procedure.)(and of course less expensive mom said) The ultrasound was "normal and did not demonstrate any soft tissue abnormalities." I have to take prednisone for 10 days and have to be on my leash all the time when I go outside...meaning NO running when I go out to potty and no jumping on the couch or bed and restricted barking cause I have to run to go bark at people when they're passing by. We're still doing the slumber partying thing in the living room, so I'm definitely not doing any jumping on the big bed. Mom's supposed to call after the round of prednisone to let them know if there's any improvement. She alerted mom that the side effects --- which everyone knows about--is increased eating, increased drinking of water then of course increased peeing to get rid of the increased water consumption. OMD! (While I was getting my ultrasound, mom went to the CVS down the street from the doctor and got some peanut butter crackers for herself and she gave me some of them when we got in the car to go home, cause she said I was such a good girl today and even impressed the vet with how calm I was.) One day at a time is all we can do. Well DUH! mom, how can we cram more than one day into a 24-hour period? Sheesh! Moms...gotta love 'em!
Hang in there Miss LouAnn and Doo......
Think in terms of months not weeks... I seriously dont like the steroids... hoping you can get her off those... my vet simply will not prescribe unless they is absolutely nothing at all else.
BUT... you have a good vet..and she is kind.... as you say.... a day at a time.

We will be keeping you in our prayers.

Thank you for the update Doo. I am wondering if Adequan injections were ever discussed for you. I got Adequan injections for both my arthritis and the spondylitis in my spine. Mom saw improvement after only two injections. Please keep us posted and I hope you feel better soon.
