My daughter Michelle called, when she got home, her little doxie was dragging his back rear leg, he had neck (IVDD) surgery 2 years ago...she took him to emergency right away, and they did some X-rays and she is waiting for some results, to see if she should take him to the surgeon that did the first surgery...They also told her that he has a heart murmerstage 3...She could use some prayers and rays...:bigrayz::bigrayz::bigrayz:

She is Michelle King Williamson on FB--Tucson Az

A quick Update---she got home about midnight I think, and he is on crate rest, prednisone, tramadol...They couldn't realy find much...She mentioned something about an MRI---don't know if they did that or not though--will have to ask her...Hubby didn't ask the questions I would. I went to bed at 11, but couldn't sleep then had to get up and go to work.
I told her it might have been a pulled muscle/tendon or anal glands...
Thanks for the rays/prayers---I know she felt better once I told her I would post it on my doxie board...

01-19-2011, 03:23 PM
She is a member here too! PM me if she needs her password reset or anything.

It does sound like IVDD, and conservative treatment CAN work, but he needs super strict crate rest so the disk can form a scar and calcify, which sadly takes 8 long painful, loud, protesty weeks (I have 4 more weeks to go with Pixel ~ sigh). I know she has been though it before with the neck, so she knows the drill. The only thing that truly helps is time. She might also want to look at laser or acupuncture which I have heard very good things about.

01-19-2011, 04:28 PM
Thanks I will tell her about the laser or accupuncture Lisa...I wasn't thinking to good...

01-19-2011, 10:52 PM
Chapo is going to see the neuro Doctor Gordon tomorrow---he is the neuro who did Chapo's neck surgery, and Gunners back---he is considered one of the best here in Az...He got his training in Canada...she wants to see if they can do a MRI to see what his problem is...I told her, might be to soon since he was under anesthecia yesterday...

01-20-2011, 04:52 PM
More :bigrayz::bigrayz::bigrayz::bigrayz::bigrayz: for Chapo!

Here is an Update from Michelle on FB--read the Update on FB :)

Michelle King Williamson--- it's been busy today, mom. His appt, got back to work and did quick updates, drama.

ANYWAY! I HAVE GOOD NEWS! Dr Gordon just called and said there IS a minor buldge, but he does NOT recommend surgery today(surgery might make it worse where... he has been improving daily) and keep doing the crate rest, leash walk, limitations as if he is post op for the next 4 weeks! He is revising his prednisone schedule, tramadol only if needed! I don't get to pick him up today, but maybe tomorrow afternoon if he eats and drinks. THANK YOU ALL FOR THE MANY PRAYERS/RAYS!!

Waiting to see if he gets to come home today...
I called the hospital this morning to check on him, and he did have a poop but won't eat...

Chapo is home and she will do 6 weeks of crate rest...so glad the doc didn't think surgery was necessary..
Thanks for all the prayers and Rays.
