Bosley is on pain meds and another drug but I am not sure what. When I picked him up, I was given so much information that I missed what the other medication was for.
His hind quarters are very tight which means he will progress slower. He keeps his legs fully extended so I have to do exercises to looses his muscles.
Taking care of him is like having a new born baby. I was peed on this afternoon and thrown up on this evening. Oh my poor Bosley.
He hasn't had a bowel movement yet and I am not sure how that is going to happen. I am overwhelmed and concerned.
I am very happy to hear Summer is doing better but if it is a disc, crate rest is so important. I was told disc problems are prevalent in long back, short leg dogs.......so chances are, your vet is right.
Hold off a bit longer but if he doesn't improve, you should do a CT scan to confirm what is going on.
Looking back, Bosley displayed signs of pain over the last few months. He had 3-4 episodes where he was shaking excessively and panting. I thought it was anxiety since it would go away in 20 minutes or so. Had we determined his problem sooner, perhaps we could have prevented the need for back surgery.
Thanks so much for your comments and support.
Hope Summer feels better soon.
