I'll keep this quick because I'm kind of in crazy mode today, but if you have a second, can you do me a HUGE favor???
We need some good thoughts sent our way...
Our dog, Buddy, started acting weird on Sunday night. We kind of kept an eye on him, thinking maybe he had a stroke or something and by Tuesday decided he needed to see the vet. Good news, no stroke, but bad news is that he has a back injury. They put him on some meds, told us to keep him inactive and we should be good to go.
Fast forward to yesterday, and he has lost all control of his front legs. He was falling down all over the place and totally out of it. We called the vet and they added a pain medicine and told us it was fairly normal for him to be wobbly.
This morning, we got home from the gym and he fell three times at the front door, before starting to shake as if he was having a seizure. We again called the vet and brought him in right away. It's undetermined if it was a seizure (luckily it hasn't happened since so maybe he was just scared), but he has nerve damage and has no use of his front legs (why he's falling). They want to stop one of his pills and start him on a heavy dose of steroids in hopes that it's a pinched nerve in the shoulders. We start those pills tomorrow and will know in 2-3 days if it will work.
If not, we're going down a road that I'm not ready for. He's only 10 and my first real pet. And my husband's best friend. It's been a rough couple of days to say the least and the road to recovery isn't going to be an easy one...
Please just say a little extra prayer if you get a chance!
