Good thoughts for Tater


Recommended Posts

Tater has a slipped disk!

It was horrible. He just screamed bloody murder on Wednesday night. I couldn't get him into the vet until this morning.

But that is the verdict. I knew it was either his back, luxating patellas, or Legg-Calve-Perthes disease (VERY common). I just couldn't tell where his pain was coming from and I didn't want to poke and prod him.

So he's on steroids for 2 weeks and he is to do NOTHING for 6 weeks. I am to carry him everywhere.

The vet said that the university would say cage rest, but she knows what a good mommy I am with my kids. And, she also knows that Tater came from a puppy mill and was kept in a rabbit cage. He screams when he sees a cage....so I know he'd hurt himself ever worse by trying to get out of the crate.

So, he's going to be even more spoiled than he is now!
