Somebody had to go to the doctor today!
Princess (the pug) knew something was up when I told her "Come on, let go bye bye". She loves to ride in the car. She I know she felt something was just not right!
She was a little apprehensive once we were at the doctor and in the exam room...
perhaps a bit relaxed even...
Once the old girl got her allergy shot she was ready to head back home.
I asked the vet to take a look at her hips since she will just be standing and her hind leg(s) gives out. He did tell us that she doesn't seem to have arthritis but in fact a slipped disc in her lower back. He did not recommend surgery at this point since she just turned 8 years old. But he referred us to a Doggy Chiropractor. Uhh yeah the closest one is 1 hour (one way) away! :O I am unsure of how we will treat the slipped disc. Right
now she is resting more comfortably in her bean bag chair.
Happy doggy dreams old girl!
