Re: Please help new to this Skipper my dog is lame both back legs

:thankyou: You're right, nothing is going to happen, because I'm hiding out, but thank you so much for the kind offer. There is a vet tech who comes to the house to do grooming, and she surprised me a few weeks ago by saying she would take care of getting my pets rehomed if anything happened. I said...

Re: Please help new to this Skipper my dog is lame both back legs

Bless his heart, he's got an ear infection again? It's wet and humid here, too. My diaper dog can't go out in the morning unless I want her to come back in soaked from the grass. If it's really nice I let her out, but usually I wait a few hours till it dries up. It's not just her diaper that gets so...

Re: Please help new to this Skipper my dog is lame both back legs

How are you guys doing? We are under a stay at home order here. Fortunately, they are allowing veterinarians to remain open so that's a big load off my mind. I don't need one right now, but if I did it would be awful to have them closed. Our stay at home order is effective till April 9, but I expect...

Re: Willow, wobbler syndrome possibly, any advice welcome

they initially thought she had been hit by a car but a scan showed she has wobblers syndrome. She stumbles and sometimes her lower half falls when she walks around. The shelter said their “best guess” is wobblers syndrome. She has a gap in her spinal column (although from what I’ve read about this ...

Re: Need help - my dog can’t walk -

There is another way to express a large female dog that I like. The idea came from Eros's mom. You stand over the dog so her ribs are between your legs and you are facing the direction of her tail. (Think of riding a horse backwards.) Clamp her sides between your knees to hold her in a standing posi...

Re: Please help new to this Skipper my dog is lame both back legs

I'm like you! Out buying extra toilet paper and I found unscented hand sanitizer in the big bottle for 99 cents at 99 Only. And I got a bunch of RediWipes for a dollar at Dollar Tree. I like them better than hand sanitizer, you can do your door knobs and car keys and steering wheel and everything wi...

Re: Need help - my dog can’t walk -

Hi milliesmum, Big, big :welcome: . You give a very good account of her history and answered the questions I might have asked. Yes, it is an adjustment to get a dog to potty in a way theyr'e not used to, and each dog has their own personality. I had a dog that didn't even want to potty on a leash wi...

New ramp for Olive

Olive has been using a ramp out the back door since we moved here, but a week ago I noticed she was stepping off the edge because she's apparently having trouble seeing. She would be on her way down and miss the edge and do a shoulder roll. Then she fell off the edge going up, too. The ramp was only...
