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

Our vets aren't allowing humans into the buildings--only critters, and some have hours shortened a bit. Here, even pet stores are allowed to be open, but many smaller outfits that are allowed to be open are closed because they can't make enough money to stay open.

Re: Willow, wobbler syndrome possibly, any advice welcome

There are so many things that can cause stumbling. Some can be helped by surgery, some by physical therapy, some are not even spinal. Congratulations on adopting her! :wub: That's SO true. My Ares was eaten by a big cat when he was just a few days old, and his throat was ripped out. 3 vets said he ...

Re: Willow, wobbler syndrome possibly, any advice welcome

:whale: I'm not familiar with that syndrome, but I've had many with spinal cord injuries. You will want to see the neurological board at viewforum.php?f=4 ; in my experience, SCIs are similar, pretty much regardless of the cause.

Re: New ramp for Olive

Nice! It'll probably take a little time for her to sort it all out, but she should certainly be able to feel the edge with that.

Re: kitten with no toes on left back leg

:whale: Hmm. Making open wounds is definitely not a good thing. I wonder if a "shoe" would help? They'd have to be custom. I wonder if a local orthotist/prosthetist would help? It's nice to be able to take them in for rechecks. My Koi used custom shoes and splints for a foot contracture after having...

Re: M Siamese, recent amputee

I consider a tripod disfigured rather than disabled, or, at least, wonky light, but that's just me, and I've had at least 4. They aren't actually disabled much.

Re: Newly diagnosed IVDD

:whale: Hmm. I wonder if a dab of canned cat food or meat baby food would work? Cheese? Peanut butter? I've found butter or margarine to make it worse--easier to spit pills out. If all else fails you can get the pills compounded to a liquid, or do it yourself. With small pills I've put them in the b...
