This is just the besstt week ... I came home from Canada and found my dear chocolate lab, Molly, paralyzed in her hind legs. husband said it came on over four days. Turns out she has horrible hip arthritis, but we basically knew that and had her on medications; the vet is hanging her hat on the x-ray showing arthritis but it looks like something neurological to me, maybe degenerative myelopathy. I couldn't face putting Molly down right away; she's happy, pain-free, and completely normal, except that she can't walk. It's just too much to face with all the other stuff going on. So I'm cooking her a high-nutrient diet and husband and I started her on some steroids and daughter helps me take her outside to do her business. Maybe we'll see a miracle and she'll get something back (she does move her hind legs a little, she just has no strength). I've even ordered a dog wheelchair from a place in MA. At least, if it doesn't work out, we'll have done what we could. Am I crazy?
