Guest diggerspeed Posted August 7, 2008 Share Posted August 7, 2008 my big boy dash had started having some issues getting straightened up after laying down and was in a lot of discomfort, when sitting down or doing anything. i took him to the vet and after some x-rays they feel like he has a herniated disc in his back. they gave my pain meds and an antiinflamatory to try and help him relax so it will hopefully get better without any thing major. they want me to keep him crated for four to six weeks and any walks are to be on a leash not loose in the back yard. im real worried about him, i dont want him to end up having surgery for this. i have had surgery on my back and i cant imagine how hard that would be on him. i sure hope this works. its gonna be tough on both of us cause we love to play so much, and my boy alex does as well. so now alex doesnt understand why dash cant play and dash doesnt understand why he cant do as he wants to. i guess right now he is limiting himself to get himself to feel better anyway, but its gonna be tough when he starts to feel better.
