Default Re: Border collie Jack

Aw Sandy, sorry to hear about Heidi's problems. Can you describe what she's doing?

We debated what orthopedist to see. There probably are some good ones around here, but the neurologist is in Rohnert Park and if we go to their orthopedist, they will have all of Jack's records and previous workup and the neurologist's firsthand experience with the diagnostics.

Plus, in their orthopedist's favor, he didn't go to the local vet school... and he has a border collie of his own.

So we are starting with the orthopedist in Rohnert Park and will see how it goes. They are a large specialty clinic so have IMs and neurologists and surgeons on staff.

I've heard really good things about a guy in Mill Valley as well.

The neurologist felt from the beginning that the type and location of Jack's limping and apparent signs of pain did not make sense as coming from the two bad discs we know he has. So I think everyone is leaning towards it being a soft tissue problem.

I actually need to find a new GP vet. There's only one at our current clinic that works very well for me and he's as afraid of Jack as Jack is afraid of him. I tried one last year and it didn't work out at all. So I need to get back to that task as well. We had a really great ER vet when Jack had the limber tail problem - wish she was in general practice.
