I wanted to post an update....
Spike is doing really good. He's wobbling a bit but is building his strength back up. And started to go back on a normal schedule.
Still does his therapy twice a week for right now, probably for another month before we go to once a week and nothing. The surgeon saw him today and he was very happy about it.

Hi, my spike had his surgery on Christmas Eve, he was doing fine and all the sudden I took him ou and he sat down and couldn't get up anymore. We rushed him to the emergency care where within 12h he had his surgery. The surgeon told us that he still had feelings but every case is different. So we went ahead and proceed. $5400 later, my wife nor I hadn't slept or eat, he stayed at the emergency care for 4 days. Now he's home. He wiggles his tail and can pee and poop by himself. Also with assistance he can stand and walk few steps before he looses his balance. He spent the first couple of weeks inside a playpen where he stays all the time except for taking him out and changing his blankets twice a day, now when I get home from work I take him out and sit with him on the floor,. I started to do a bit of exercises, mostly massaging his legs for blood flow, but I really don't want to work him out too much. We Live one day at the time and look forward. I had a lot of people telling me that I shouldn't wasted my money. But he's my baby and I know he will be fine. He will have to see the surgeon next week, where he will evaluate him and give us a better exercises regime. If there is any other suggestion from someone who went thru this I really appreciate it. Thank you.

My spike is going thru right now he had his surgery almost two weeks now, he's still not walking but I do 15 mins of therapy every day. He's at the point where he stands but he doesn't take steps. And when he's laying down he stretches his legs. Is like he's afraid or hurt to put weight on it. What else should I do?

Hi, my spike had his surgery a week ago, yup Christmas Eve, he was doing fine and all the sudden I took him ou and he sat down and couldn't get up anymore. We rushed him to the emergency care where within 12h he had his surgery. The surgeon told us that he still had feelings but every case is different. So we went ahead and proceed. $5400 later, my wife nor I hadn't slept or eat, he stayed at the emergency care for 4 days. Now he's home. He wiggles his tail and can pee and poop by himself. Also with assistance he can stand. My wife and I have him inside a playpen where he stays all the time except for taking him out and changing his blankets twice a day, which I'm thinking to keep him in there and work around him without moving him too much. I started to do a bit of physical theraphy but I really don't want to work him out too much so I do mostly massages to his back legs to stimulate blood flowing. We Live one day at the time and look forward. I had a lot of people telling me that I shouldn't wasted my money. But he's my baby and I know he will be fine. He will have to see the surgeon in 3 weeks. If there is any other suggestion from someone who went thru this I really appreciate it. Thank you.
