    My vet agrees with my chiropractor that the issue is in the neck. We're going to our canine neurologist tomorrow morning for an assessment and an MRI. For now, Layla had a morphine-based injection and has muscle relaxers and Gabapentin, plus Metacam. She's lying on her little dog bed looking totally blissed-out! IMG_7159.jpg

    I hope and pray with rest and meds she will recover quickly. I wish they could talk to us. It is so hard to see our babies hurting in any way! Fingers and paws crossed for a speedy recovery.

    Oh dang - I am so sorry poor little Layla had that accident! That's happened here too but luckily not a very high bed and onto carpet. I know she is your world Chris so I hope it's nothing serious, just a temporary setback. She certainly looks snowed in that photo - a good thing right now. Hugs to you and gentle pats to Layla. :fl

    Poor girl! I hope you see some improvement tomorrow.
    Years ago my mom's dog had hurt his neck, it was very debilitating for him. A cortisone shot however helped him recover 100%.

    Yes, inquiring minds want to know...
    Is she at least eating? Any positive improvements at all?
