Very sad today because our Newf, Ebony, is losing the use of her back legs. Her left leg is the worst but her right leg isn't doing very well either. She's pretty much having to pull her body up to stand from her shoulders and sometimes she can get her back legs to to cooperate and many times her legs drag behind her. It's heartbreaking.
We LOVE our Ebony. She's basically a therapy dog for our nine year old daughter who has autism and she's brilliant w/ our son who has T21.
I don't know what to do from here. I took her to a vet about a month ago when she started limping and after $375, which included remadyl and a doggie "narcotic" for the pain, we didn't see much of a difference. The vet wanted to do a sedated x-ray on her hips but we can't afford another $400 just to see what may or may not be happening.
Knew you guys here would understand.... .
