I have a suggestion, maybe a dog cart, like a doggy wheelchair? She could still get around, still use her legs, but the cart takes most of the weight and strain off her legs.

I was thinking of a wheel chair myself and asked the vet about it but she didn't recommend it and it totally made sense why...there's a lot of dogs out there that only have 3 legs and walk/run fine everyday of their lives, they use them more for when their paralyzed I guess.

And on a good note T-Sha has been doing very well! She's even started walking on all 4s again. (Kind of like tip toes on the bad leg) but its totally an improvement from before, yay!! She'll even run when mama isn't looking! I've got her to lose a little weight as well and I think that has helped tremendously with the LP.


Merry Christmas everyone!!!

So happy to hear she is feeling a bit better, hope she continues to feel less pain. We just had one ours put down a few weeks ago, it was very hard to do, but she was screaming in pain and would bite when we tried to help her. She was 16 almost 17 years old. Your percious one is so young. Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas.

So sorry to hear! Hang in there! I would def get a second opinion, that is a lot of money. Could you possibly do glucosamine and con. Supplements?

I see you are in MA, are you going to Angell Animal Medical Center or Tufts University? If not I would check them out for a second opinion, I personally love Angell myself. If you are already going to one you could check the other one out for a second opinion. There is also a few great support groups and resources on the internet for orthopedic issues in dogs. If you are interested message me for the info so I remember! I went through some ortho issues with one of my dogs (not nearly as severe) so I have quite the list of resources on my computer but I'm on a different one right now so I don't have the word file with all my research.
