Re: Issue with front legs sliding out

Thanks for posting the videos. :thankyou: I see what you mean. She's trucking along pretty good in that first video, really good for a little 14 year old dog. Then she kind of does the Bambi on ice thing in the second video. Her left front flails and she doesn't set it down all the way. I've never s...

Re: Issue with front legs sliding out

I see what you mean. It's like her left leg did not take that next step. Does she ever drag her claws on that foot or skin the tops of her knuckles? Has she been examined since she started doing this? Just to see if it is something neurological? Does she let you pet her head? :thinking: At first I w...

Re: Issue with front legs sliding out

They do make something sort of like you say. Maybe? I have no experience with it and haven't heard anyone report on how they like it. https://www.dogleggs.com/shoulder-stabilization-system/ This one is Canadian, see Shoulder Hobble. https://animalrehab.on.ca/index.php/portfolio-item/supports/#Should...

Re: Issue with front legs sliding out

Hi lily145195, :group: She sounds like a little cutie. Is she having this problem with her front legs sliding when she is on grass or carpeting, or mainly on the tile? I ended up getting floor mats for my dog Merlin (golden retriever) when he got old and was slipping. We had a tile floor in one hous...

Re: My dog has not defecated after being hit by a car

Hi scndrose, I'm glad to hear the update. I was wondering how you guys were doing. I'm surprised he was kind of standing on his injured hips after the accident, but it just goes to show how dogs manage to make the best of a situation and just keep on going! I'm sorry to hear about the expense, but a...

Re: My dog has not defecated after being hit by a car

Hi scndrose, :group: It's not too surprising if he hasn't defecated yet. You have him on pain meds, so that's good, but he may still have some discomfort and he's probably a little stressed out or tense from all this. He knows he can't do his business by squatting in the usual position, so that is k...

Re: Pip diagnosis - Central cord syndrome

That's an interesting question. :smart: Actually? No. We have some on hand because he was on it for weeks after his surgery. But during that time, did I pay any attention to his spasms if touched? No. Really, did I try to pet him at all while he was on it? No. I left him alone to recover... :thinking:

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!
