Hi, hope you're still on this blog. I took my Shih Tzu to the emergency vet yesterday. After xrays and bloodwork, they determined its likely ivd, or a slipped disc. On meds right now with strict cage rest. This happened suddenly, no use of the back right leg. She was not able to move around. If she moved at all, the leg was dragging. When i brought her home last night, she drank some water, and i held her up to go potty. Just checking in to see how your baby is doing...i see your post was 2 months ago, so very curious to see if any improvement. Thanks!View Thread
