Have Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet Online.
Two separate vets have viewed the xrays (we moved and had to change docs) and both agreed there was nothing on the xray that was abnormal. As you might imagine, they specifically looked for signs of hip dysplasia and arthritis. I do have the xrays on a dvd somewhere, but I'm not sure where... And I just don't think they'll help. Her current doc said we could take her to a diagnostic clinic and have her see a neurologist and an orthopedist and whomever else might be able to find something, but we don't have a ton of money to do all of that. No offense, but I didn't really think I was going to get any new suggestions, I just wanted to try.
Okay, these are definitely new ideas. If it was 1) spinal or neurologic disease, or 2) degenerative myelopathy, or 3) dermoid cysts, what would be the prognoses and treatment options? I am almost positive my husband wouldn't agree to $1,500 for an MRI...
