That's great news that it's not her spine!!!! Do you have her on a joint supplement. I have had great success with Cosequin DS sprinkle capsules. Again, I'm so happy to hear it's not her spine.
Kathy...that’s a great suggestion. Is that a prescription? I have never giving any joint supplements before because I’ve never needed too, but now I will. The neurologist only called in gabapentin for pain and I think it helps with inflammation.That's great news that it's not her spine!!!! Do you have her on a joint supplement.

Kathy...is this the one you order? I’ll order it from Chewy. NUTRAMAX Cosequin Maximum Strength (DS) Capsules Joint Health Dog Supplement, 132 count - Chewy.comThe cosequin is not a prescription. My vet just orders it in for me because they don't carry it. When I first got it for Pipper years ago he wouldn't put any weight on one leg while standing still. After a few weeks on the cosequin he never held his leg up again. I use sprinkle capsules and just sprinkle half of a capsule daily in his food.
Maybe Ling Ling was feeling a referred pain in her back but it was actually coming from her knees.
Ok, great, thank you very much!Yes thats the one I have. Only difference is that its triple the price here in Canada 😲
The dosage starts for a 10 lb dog, which Pipper is, so you might have to adjust it a bit but the capsules pull apart so you can use as much or little of the powder as you want.
Kitzel had LP surgery? is that why he limps? Lacie did swim therapy and acupuncture as a puppy because she was too weak to be put under and was told if I continued to exercise her, the muscle around the kneecap would act like a cage and support the kneecap from slipping. It’s always worked, so I’m really surprised it hasn’t worked for Ling Ling with all the walking they do.Our prayers have been answered! Little Ling-Ling may benefit from this so we are hopeful. It did not help Kitzi but that is another story. It does help most dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prayers continue. Thank you God.
Oh...thank you so much. Gosh...how that ER was so way off in diagnosis. Thankyou again for offering your experience with spine issues and IVDD. Even though it didn’t help me, it may someone else reading this thread 💕I am so happy to hear that it is not IVDD or any other spine issue! Hopefully you can find something to help her with her knee.
I only know that my 10 year old girl walks sideways. The groomer and I think she had a stroke. She has had 3 seizures in the past. I’ve taken her to 3 different Vets and they all have a different opinion! All her blood panels come back normal. I wish she could tell me what happened. Sorry to hear about your it your girl. Praying for you both!Does anyone have experience with this? My Ling Ling is currently confined to crate rest for 8 weeks or until we can see the neurologist to see what’s going on with her spine. She’s really in a lot of pain. Her symptoms were her back legs were going out on her and she couldn’t put weight on them. When she could walk she was swaying sideways on the rear end to walk.
They dx her with herniated disc based on her examination.
The ER wants me to keep her heavily drugged these next few weeks to see if rest helps. They don’t even want her to walk outside to potty. I am to carry her.
This is so stressful keeping a dog caged when they never had to be. Poor baby doesn’t understand what’s going on. The only positive is she is soooo lovable when drugged up🤦🏻♀️
Thankyou. During her episodes, I did wonder if she was having a seizure . Thankfully, the neurologist ruled out everything. It was her knees giving out from her luxating patella.I only know that my 10 year old girl walks sideways. The groomer and I think she had a stroke. She has had 3 seizures in the past.
