Paka is 9-1/2 now (oh my) and she suddenly couldn’t get on our bed by herself. T was admittedly very high as it was a poster bed with those extremely high mattresses that exist now. We noticed that she was walking sort of squatted and immediately called to take her to the vet. They took xrays. Nothing broken. Bedrest, painkiller and muscle relaxant. Don’t know if the meds made her more hyper but she was impossible to keep still. By the end of the week she was not better and the vet ordered us to put her in a dog crate. She spent another week and a half there and then went to the orthopedic surgeon who told us to keep her there for another two weeks with prednisone but there was a small deformity on her spine, either congenital or from an injury before we do the MRI and other expensive testing. She isn’t in pain until the examination. I AM FRANTI.C !!!
