Roscoe hurt his back during Christmas '09. After visits with our regular vet., we have made strides with him. The first 3 weeks, Roscoe was on medication. He was unable to walk on his own. I made a make shift brace with 3 socks to support him to walk & also allow him to take potty breaks. His slip disc is now in it's 3rd month. He is improving...but remember guys, it's a long process. Patient and prayers help! Roscoe continue to improve each day and we hope for the best.
