Well, he's hard headed as a Mule, how's that? Lol

He has his little scuttle walk down with a quickness, and is insisting he can make it up the patio step and huffs when you pick him up to stop him. So if determination is a key, we may have that covered.

There are slight improvements that an eagle eye mom can see. He is no longer dragging his right foot and he's standing a tad straighter. He is also trying to do things like scratch his ears and reach back and nibble/bite his back and legs. This results in a little whimper, but then a bit of pissyness when you help him.

his tail is wagging and he was very happy to see the boy when he came home from school. So, we're moving forward little baby hamster steps, but forward. I'm waiting to hear back from the acupuncturist, so until then we're going to book a laser therapy for Saturday.

Oh, and I had a bag of chicken jerky treats and the booger snatched the bag and scuttled off with it. Sigh. Right now he's calmly sleeping.

Glad to hear that he's steadily improving. Arnica would be a good choice for inflammation and there is one for nerve stuff too...hypericum.

Got some pics this morning. The first is him at the vet's, the day after the incident. He was majorly sloped/hunched. You can also see how far out slipped his right foot was.



Here is this morning during potty time. He's lifted up a few inches, although still doing his hunchback or Nortre Dame impersonation, and his right foot is now completely caught up with the left.




He also slept through the whole night, with one potty break. The first night home was a restless mess.

Thanks for the photos. I'm glad he's getting better. I'm glad he slept through the night, too. That's a plus for you and him!

I have been following but hadn't posted. This had to have been one of the most frightening things ever, I'm so happy to see he is improving!!

Just got an appointment with the acupuncturist. Her next opening wasn't until mid-December, but because of the injury, he's going to see her next Tuesday afternoon. smile

Also, at lunch, he scratched his ear (mostly) with his back leg with no whimpering! thumbup

I lost a post here, but it's fine because Panzer seems to continue to improve happyboogie.

Look, it's a real dog with a real injury, so I don't want to be silly. I just want him to be well.

all the best,
MJ

Glad to hear that he's doing better and also that the acupuncturist got you in next week.

You can find Hypericum by itself as a remedy. I do not think it is the same as St. John's Wort.

I wasn't sure, so I looked it up. According to this reference hypericum and St John's wort are pretty much the same; except for "marsh St John's Wort" which is in a different family of plants

Hypericum is the name of the homeopathic remedy while St. John's Wort is the herb?
