I'm 13 now and my legs just aren't cooperating. Mom says I have deteriorated this week and they took me to the doctor yesterday. I could hardly make my back legs work and I kept collapsing. So off I went to the Vet. It was awful. They took a lot of tests and some xrays. The bright spot was that the people that work there are so nice to me. One guy kept coming back when he wasn't busy to give me pets and scritches. I enjoyed that.
The Dr. showed Mom and Dad the xrays. Something about my hip displaysia getting worse and a possible compressed disk and something about my spine. They sent me home with pain pills saying that should help. Mom wanted me to stay in last night but I wasn't having it, so she was up every 3 hours coming out to check on me. My legs still aren't behaving but I try to move a little every now and then. My goal is to make it to the sunny spot this morning. Mom tried to help move me but I told her to back off, I want to do this on my own. Mom's worried because I'm not eating much either. I think if I just chill out in the sun I'll feel better. I'm not giving up yet.

It's tough getting old...Cleo has had kennel cough since Christmas and is not feeling a hundred percent either. I hope you are feeling better...did the doctor say anything about further imaging (myelogram, MRI, CT) to better characterize the problem with your spine? You tell your mom she can always give us a call if she has questions or just needs to talk. :)

We're thinking about you sweetie! Hope your legs get better.
Maleka...don't give up , Has your family thought about accupunture? I know a old dog that could not get around anymore and his family took him and now he is doing ok.
Your still young at 13...
