Our vet thinks that Oskar has a spinal lesion, which is like a slipped disc. He will be on Prednisone for 3 weeks along with Pepcid AC for his stomach because the Prednisone can be kind of harsh.
Right now he can walk pretty well when he can get up, but he really can’t get up from a sitting or laying down position. His back legs won’t lift him up. We have to keep him from running, jumping, etc. for at least 2 weeks which will be a challenge.
Here’s a link to a YouTube video of what’s happening.
It’s really terrifying to see him not be able to get up like this.
We would love to hear from anyone who has been through this before.
