Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Good evening. I'm so sorry to hear that Mezy isn't doing well. Poor kid. Hopefully I can give you some insight into what's going on with her. Can you give me a little more information?1) During her visit today, were any xrays taken of her hips or legs?
2) Has she sustained any injuries in her youth as trauma, such as being hit by a car?
3) What NSAID was prescribed today? Does she take any other medications?4) When you say that she cannot rise, does she bend her legs in an attempt to get them under her and fail or are her rear legs either limp or stiff and she cannot bend them to put them in the right spot?
5) Does she currently appear painful? If you were to use a towel or sheet as a sling and raise her rear end off the ground, is she then able to ambulate?This additional info will help me to give you the most concise answer.
