How's the puppy?

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

My puppy has a fibrocartilaginous embolism. That's a piece of cartilage that is blocking the blood vessel supplying the spinal cord. It takes a while but does go away. Anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months. Some web sites say dogs are paralyzed forever, perhaps the rare one improves, my vet says he will improve and he is already over Wed's visit when he had no feeling and no reflexes in his legs. Now he is getting feelng back in his toes and has reflexes back. Two weeks ago he crashed and tore ligaments in both back legs which may have started the embolism. Nothing vets can do but they do expect he will recover completely pope.gif All this cost $70 which includes a $27 bottle of glucosamine tablets. So there was even money left over for beer


quick edit
He is not in pain (other than the torn ACLs)

hug.gif hi5.gif This is good news, a hopeful prognosis from the vet can really put your mind at ease, believe me I know. My pets have been just like my kids to me, went through a similar episode with a dachshund Shadow, it took a couple of weeks but he came around.
Give our love to that little man!

Yeah I was pretty upset when the tick medicine didn't work. Is really hard to watch a beloved (and he his, so much) pet struggle like that. But knowing he's getting better... :`) He's such an awesome dog.
