Pets and pats

I've said before I'm unable to pet Pip. I don't want to pet his head because of the neck injury. If I try to pet him down his back, he spasms when you touch a sensitive spot in the upper lumbar area. This year I discovered that if he's lying on his side, I can take the flat of my hand and pat-pat-pa...

Crate pan cover for traction

I just saw this on Chewy . It's a cover you slip onto the tray of a dog crate. This would be great for when your senior pet gets to the place that their feet slip on the plastic. It would be a hassle keeping it clean, but you could put another layer such as a towel or blanket over it. The second lay...

Re: Need some support after annpe dx

Hi Lisac1818, :group: I don't know how many replies you will get on this new post since dogs with ANNPE tend to go on to lead normal lives and their pet parents do not stick around and read new messages. One way to possibly get more replies is to post a reply in an existing ANNPE thread. The people ...

Re: Pip diagnosis - Central cord syndrome

I've been thinking about Pip and his soy milk. Some mornings he drinks it all down and some mornings he laps a few times, stops, then may or may not repeat. It isn't 'off' or anything, tastes fine if I check it. I just realized yesterday he acts exactly like someone who just got an ice cream headach...

Re: Great PIC - cat in onesie

Footies! :lol: Looks great but the clip will be in the way if the kitty rolls over. Maybe try a diaper pin if you can find some? Super cute!

Cat treats for chronic constipation

I've never heard of this, but someone should invent it. Cat treats with Miralax or lactulose in them. Maybe with fiber. But yummy. :chef: Why isn't this on the market? Or is it? Libby is doing pretty well with her constipation, but wouldn't it be wonderful if you noticed your cat was seeming a littl...

Re: Looking for Medical Treatment Experience for IVDD in Beagles (or other breeds)

OK, here are 2 articles that may help. The second one is easier to read on mobile devices, hard to read on a desktop. Excuse the long post but I will make some comments below. https://toegrips.com/ivdd-surgery/ https://dodgerslist.com/2020/02/10/surgery-vs-conservative The decision regarding conserv...

Re: Looking for Medical Treatment Experience for IVDD in Beagles (or other breeds)

Hi Tobythebeagle727,
:banner:
Can you clarify, are they thinking he might have IVDD in his neck, where he had pain in February? I have a dog who had neck surgery and can make further comments from experience, but I want to be sure I understand.

Re: New here, are there good signs for IVDD recovery?

Hi CC4PHOEBE, :group: You didn't say, but I am assuming your Yorkie had surgery on her back and not on her neck? I would talk to the surgeon about the bed. I am not a vet, but my understanding was that after surgery, there is a period of crate rest prescribed by the surgeon, but it is not forever. Y...

Re: Pip diagnosis - Central cord syndrome

With all the hoopla, I kept forgetting to post something. When we were in the hotel, I was walking past the front desk and the receptionist stopped me and handed me a styrofoam take-out box. She said a man who had been with us in the elevator left it for the puppy. When I got up to the room and open...
