Since I had to be in court this morning, Rick had to take Rudy to the Vet and my information is a bit sketchy. Rudy has two bulging discs. He was given a steroid shot and is now on a muscle relaxer and oral steroids. He is on crate rest for at least a week and cannot do steps - which is a problem in our house...Guess we will be carrying him in and out of the house for a while. We will be calling in the holistic Vet that does Chiropractic adjustments and Acupuncture for treatments as well. Our Vet feels that he should make a full recovery. I guess his herding days are over now. Any suggestions on how we avoid any future problems for Rudy would be greatly appreciated.
