I am so sorry that you and poor Rudy have gone through this but that he is improving is wonderful. I have only had one dog with spine injury, in her neck. Fortunately with anti-inflammatory injections, a few chiropractor/vet appts and lifetime use of bromelain, she recovered and rarely had issues. Your dog's injury however is heart stopping. Thank goodness you and your vet acted so quickly before irreversible damage was done.
Hi all, two year old Sydney was involved in a scrap at daycare, and came out with a tail injury. Tail has been down and she certainly is not herself. We've been to the vet, shaved tail, some obvious trauma, prescribed rimadyl and cefpodoxime, and neosporin on the tail. We've given her the antibiotic, but stopped the pain med. She's eating, drinking, peeing and pooping relatively normal. Biggest concern is that she won't sit or lay down. She almost falls asleep standing, then wakes up just as she loses balance. So sad to watch. Worried that she isn't sleeping. She also won't leave her tail alone. Any ideas? We will likely go back to the vet Monday…poor pup.
