|We wish Remington a good recovery!
Nemesis was recently struck by a car and needed surgery to fix his back vertebrae and straighten out his spine. That was about 10 weeks ago. After spending about 6 weeks confined to a crate he is almost back to his old self. We went from hearing that he might have to get his tail amputated, may not be able to use his hind legs, or might have a limp to a dog that has his tail, can run, jump, climb stairs and stand on his hind legs. He is well aware that he is more limited, but you wouldn't think he was hit by a car just 10 weeks ago.
The first few weeks I called the vet because he would go almost two days at a time without pooping or urinating. So we added canned pumpkin to his diet for more fiber and eventually he would go when he needed. We would stand behind him and help him express his bladder while supporting his hind legs. But he decided that he would rather pee laying down.
So HANG IN THERE! I'm sure Remington will make an amazing recovery!
