Hi everybody. About three months ago I noticed that Stomps' right hind leg was shaky and weak. I took him to the vet, who said it was arthritis and gave me medicine for that. I didn't think he was acting like he was in pain, but I always take a vet's opinion over my own. Anyway, the pain killers didn't seem to help much, and more recently I noticed that his left leg was very wobbly and sometimes he would walk like he was drunk. Back to the vet clinic, where we saw a different vet. She said it was a spinal problem (Stomps has a very roached back) and that I had to crate him for four weeks. I got a big crate for him and try to keep him in it as much as possible, but I figure he sleeps about 20 hours a day, so as long as he's not on the furniture, does he have to be in the crate? Anyway, he's a little better, but I think this is a chronic problem and not acute, as the vet thought. So other than keep him off the furniture, is there anything else I can do to help him? Keeping him crated indefinitely is no life for him. And other than his drunken walking, he seems healthy and happy. He's about 12 or 13. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
