    Prayers for Bugsy that he gets better quickly.
    We never touch people so lightly that we don't leave a trace.

    I called the vet, hoping someone might still be in the office as it was within half hour of closing, but no luck. I left a message that he needed to come in first thing in the morning.

    It's now been about an hour and a half and he can stand a bit and walk a bit, but it's definitely not even close to right. I went to the store and they were out of marrow bones and beef ribs, so I got him some of those natural smoked bones from the pet section to get him distracted and keep him quiet.

    So far no poop or pee. I'm trying not to bother him much and let him rest it. That's what the bones are for.

    He got the pred, Torb and into the crate within a minute or two of it happening.

    Take care,
    Lisa

    I'd take him out by himself and hold him up with a towel if you need to.

    When Kelev pinched a nerve in his neck....The vet gave him a shot to relax his muscles and he had valium for 3 days after that!

    You could alternate cold and heat on him for a bit???

    I prepared the small crate in the bedroom with an orthopedic pad, took him out of the other crate and carried him into the yard and let him down to potty. He walked, but it was wobbly and stiff legged. He even managed to lift a leg to pee. As soon as he peed I put him in the small crate and he'll stay there the rest of the night.

    So there is definitely a lot of improvement over when it first happened.

    Will update in the morning.

    Take care,
    Lisa
