I just came across your video of Hank the beagle from Dec. 2016 and it gives me hope.
Our beagle Katy just had surgery for a ruptured disc between the T12-13 and T13-L1 vertebrae that was causing compression on the spinal cord. She had no use of her back legs.
She had a hemilaminectomy on the 13th after waking up with no use of her back legs.
We brought her home today the 18th, still no use of her back legs and we have to express her bladder for her.
Also It’s my first day but I can’t seem to get her bladder to express. She has leaked pretty consistently on the pad overnight.
One last thing. She tends to sit up and not want to lay down. Can she not do this on her own. When I guided her down she went right to sleep but I dont want to force anything that may cause damage.
Dr. said we should give it until the end of the month to see if overall improvement happens.
Any advice. Signs of hope to look for?
We are doing passive range of motion therapy with her.
Thank you so much,
