Hippo enquired about Maddy so I thought I might update everyone
For those who may not have been following, Madeline was diognosed with Canine Spondylosis (I think I spelt that right)
While we can treat the symtoms we cant treat the condition and it will over the years get worse.
She's been off painkillers for 2 weeks now and is doing great. Most days she's her normal bouncy self. But she does have bad days.
She has the most trouble early morning and night times.
When she wakes she crawls along the floor a couple of meters before she can stand. And she's very careful walking up stairs, she'lll come running up and skid to a stop and slowly make her way up putting 4 paws on each step before going to the next.
It's recommended she gets 2 20 min walks a day. And I been taking her as much as I can but it causes her alot of stress (she's never dealt well with walks) so her exersize is mainly in the yard.
I am waiting on a new blackdog head collar that may help put less stress on neck if she starts to carry on while walking, so hopefully that will help.
Oh has got a photo of her xray on his phone I'll try to get it off him so I can post it tonight.
