The news on Rudy is not good - he has a two compressed discs. We rushed him to the Vet as soon as we saw him having difficulty standing and walking. Thankfully, he is not paralyzed. His rear legs just kept giving out on him. He was given the "miracle" shot and is back on an anti-inflammatory and a muscle relaxer. This morning he is showing some improvement and actually got up and walked a few steps to get a drink. Our Vet is not optimistic that he will make a full recovery and is not recommending surgery at this time. He is on crate rest for now. I am contacting the acupuncture/chiropractic mobile Vet in area to see when she can come see him. She is a miracle worker and we hope that will give him some relief. In any event, Rudy's rough and tumble, run around like an idiot, frapping days are over.
