06/11/2005: Post-Less for A While...
I've been in the midst of some pet health care issues [along with my own leg problems - though that one is about 95% better - *smile* ]. So, it's been a tough and busy week, and I've currently got a sedated dog - following x-rays to rule out a fracture. The most like suspect is a spinal neck injury, which Dachshunds are prone to - along with various back problems as they age. :-(
I have to see what treatment options and medication *might* make her better and well again. And whether a visit to a dog-neurologist is warranted and (IF) surgery is recommended - should it be done? or will my poor houndie get worse and suffer neurological paralysis from this? Not a good set of conditions.
And not a lot of time to post...but be back in a bit - and perhaps an update. I trust Len and Brock will *pick-up* the slack until I sort things down. :-)
