Default Re: Hope for Abby?

Thank you so much for your responses. Mark and I have decided to get her up to walk a least three times a day even if it's only for short distances like from the house to the yard or to our driveway and back. We use a harness that goes under her belly with handles to help lift her up. She does not like to make a mess in the house and lately has been wanting to stay outside during the day. I make sure she has a shady spot and cold water. We are also messaging her legs and making sure to feed her twice a day at the same time to get insulin in her.

I am considering applying for a doggie wheelchair to help Abby regain her strength as well as to help her walk longer distances for weight loss. It's her hips, so I figure a wheelchair can help stabilize her. We have gabupentin and carpropen for the pain.
