I try to distract myself. I like to do crafts, so I will do that during the evening...it gives me something else to focus on and think about, but I can still be near Abby and talk to her to keep her from getting too upset.  It also helps to talk to people who are understanding and who care about you and your pup.

>> To everyone thank you for your support; I have been through these issues with my other two but still failed to reconize my girls as having back issues. I sometimes want to crawl under a rock I seem so dumb about this. I'm just scared as I always am. I took Shanna for a recheck today and after one dose of the steriod she was better with the paw test so he agreeded to let me watch her with kennel rest and laser treatments and tomorrow acupuncture if I can get an appointment and pain meds no steroid today but I got a bottle of steroids in case. It kills me to watch my dogs kenneled and sick. Cheri this dog is not my dog who was borderline cushing Thank God, I would not wnat her on steroids ever; For that dog I do Chinese medicine. I'm so thankful for everyone's responses, I feel better now, also remembering the others got well. We aren't out of the woods yet but hoping and praying she gets better soon;

>>> Just wanted to run this by everyone, My girl appears to have a back issue, first diagnosed with a bladder infection, symptoms progressed as her little paw won't turn a 'certain way' now so doctor is sure she has back issues. She was acting weird but not really crying out in pain, now after him giving her a shot of pregnisone a strong steroid, and a pain pill she won't move much and has no reactions just lays in her kennel, doesn't even want to eat unless I hand feed her. She went from walking around to this.
>>> Please any suggestions? She also gets laser treatments. I'm going to go get acupuncture tomorrow also; I just feel like I shouldn't be letting the vet give her the strong steroids???????? I take her back to him this afternoon for more steroids.
>>> Please anyone know anything to help me? Prayers also please;
