Re: Paralyzed dog with FCE

You guys got an appt! Yay!!! :D If they have worked with FCE before, that's great. An hour is a bit of a drive, but hopefully worth it. The PT place here is about 40 minutes one way (mostly expressway up to 70 mph when it isn't bogged down to a standstill). I put the carrier sideways in the seat for...

Re: Paralyzed Dog kicking

I agree with RedKat. You've taken her to a vet twice but he hasn't given a firm diagnosis. You need a specialist asap if you can. You need a diagnosis. There are diseases that can cause both fever and paralysis, but there are different diseases in different parts of the world, and a specialist where...

Re: Paralyzed dog with FCE

Good news on the UTI! I can believe she was uncomfortable and restless with the UTI, even if she is "paralyzed". Nerves heal very, very slowly. With my dog, it seemed like maybe if I really stretched my imagination I could think she had improved a tiny bit about every 6 weeks, and I wasn't sure of t...

Re: Kitten with open fontanelle and one eye bulging

Hi Choppa,

I do not know anything about this but I did remember an article about it. I think critters is the one who originally found it. :D Here is a link and I hope someone with kitten experience will reply.

Re: Seeking help with paralysed dog bowel movements

I do not think this picture will offend too many people with paralyzed dogs, so I will go ahead and post it. This morning I fed my partially paralyzed dog breakfast, then expressed her bowel and put on her diaper, which has a tail hole for stools to fall out. At lunchtime I left to do some errands a...

Re: Seeking help with paralysed dog bowel movements

:slant: It sounds like you are already doing so many things that are recommended to help. You are expressing her. I do that with my one dog and I agree, even when I express her at bedtime, there are usually still doodles in her bed in the morning, just less than there would have been. You tried timi...

Free Walkin' Pets Drag Bag XS

Never used, too small for my 8-lb dog.
Looks like it would fit a small adult cat that is slim.
Please post a photo of your pet if interested.

Re: Incontinence & Athletic Supporter

I just can't picture it. Seems like the tail would make it crooked. I could always picture the boy's underwear idea really well with the tail through the fly. :smart:

Re: Goat with prosthetic front legs

This is cool, there's a video with multiple animals including a miniature horse, some sheep, and an elephant. There is a black pitbull with a front leg prosthesis, and it looks like he has almost no leg to attach it to , but they have done something with a molded plastic (?) body cast that fits on h...

Re: Paralyzed dog with FCE

She IS a pretty girl. I love the ears! Chihuahuas rule! I temp fostered a minpin one time, she was amazing, too. She had that little prance they do with their front feet (called a hackney gait). It was really cool. Great picture!

Re: Paralyzed dog with FCE

Fortunately, Nature gave dogs a cast iron stomach to survive many things. I watched my first rescue dog pick up a dried out dead bird many days old in the middle of the road and eat it. I called the vet and he was unconcerned, said he'd probably had to scavenge before he was rescued. The vet was rig...

Re: chihuahua-loose kneecap

Hi, She should be able to poo and pee in any of the major brand wheelchairs. I think the main concern would be getting one small enough and light enough for her. I think it would be reasonable to ask the companies to send you a picture of the saddle with no dog in it, if there is not one on the webs...
