Thanks Rick. Sorry to hear about your troubles as well.. sending good thoughts out to Tony and your family, and hoping for a full recovery!TkoK83Spy wrote: ↑Tue Mar 10, 2020 9:31 amSorry to hear that Rick. They really are part of the family! We're currently going through our own issues with ours right now as well
About a month ago he began holding up his rear left leg, or not putting much pressure on it if he were to put it down on the floor. He's a wild one, so we thought maybe he strained something. Gave it a few days and it didn't seem to be getting any better. Took him to the vet and had xrays done and they thought it could be a variety of things. Gave him some medicine thinking it was a nerve issue, but that didn't improve anything and only made him very clumsy and out of it.
Last week my wife took him to a specialist at Cornell college around an hour away from us. A couple days prior to going, we began to notice that his head, just in front of his ears looked like it was beginning to collapse into his head a bit, looking a bit deformed. Cornell determined that his leg isn't causing him any pain, and that he may have some kind of lower spinal injury, some kind of autoimmune disease, the possible dreaded "C" word or a couple other things. Very frustrating not to know at this time without even further testing (MRI and spinal tap...$2,500!) Last Thursday they started him on a steroid pill he takes twice a day. He has began to use his hind leg a bit more, which is very encouraging...but his head is getting worse. Back to the vet tomorrow. He's also only 7 or 8 years old and it's breaking our hearts seeing multiple issues going on with him. The most recent Manix 2/Rex 45 will be my last knife purchase for a bit, as taking care of our Tony is certainly more of the priority at the moment and that's where any extra money is going.
This is a picture my wife took of him at the specialist...DID NOT like the vet touching and poking him! Hiding in the corner under my wifes chair!
I don’t feel sorry for dogless people, but neither do I trust them as readily as dog-lovers.
It’s tough, but I would suggest a Labrador Retriever. They almost never eat newborn babies, unless extremely hungry.
