I am sure that your vet has already checked her spine, but my sisters dog has a pinched nerve in his spine that causes him to do exactly what you're describing. She has had to get him steroid injections to reduce the swelling and let him rest twice in the last year. Just a thought. Good luck!

She didn't actually check her spine (as far as I noticed anyway). I should ask her about that, but like I said, her hips are really bony...makes it seem like hip dysplaysia or arthritis. Were your sister's dog's hips bony?

I am so sorry, my computer timed out on me and I didn't check back until just now. My sisters dog is really tiny, he weighs under 5 lbs, so he is bony all over. His came up all of the sudden too, like you said happened with Jazzy. We really thought his back was broken or something he was so disabled by it. He couldn't move his back legs, walk, go to the bathroom, he drug his limp legs behind him, and we all were so scared for him. The vet did a spinal x-ray and noticed the bulging disc and pinched nerve and gave him the steroids and kept him crated for a few days and voilą, he was up and running again. It happened again about 6 months later, the same disc, the same treatment and he has been fine since. I really hope that this helps you and you have some luck at the vet tomorrow. Good luck to you and Jazzy!

Well, Jasmine is in sad and in pain no more. She died yesterday while my son was home alone with her. While we're glad she is suffering no more, that was really hard on my 16-yr-old son who doesn't remember a life without her to have to deal with that when no one else was home. My heArt breaks for him, but he's dealing....
She was never the same since she lost her sight because there was nothing that brought her greater joy than running after balls, rabbits, squirrels...and she couldn't anymore. She's in a better place.
Thank you all for your help and support over the years!

my 17 year old son took jesse to the emergency vet when this all started with jesse . i think he was 17 . the diagnosis was brutal for a young guy who never experienced things like that but he did and excellent job and i was very proud of him

the really tough experiences are the ones that prepare us for future challenges . i know its hard for your son but let him know jazz did not have to leave alone she had your son and what a gift that is to be able to say goodbye and helping her crossover

glad she is in a happier place running free chasing those rabbits in the tall grass

I am so sorry for you all,and for your son. Jasmine felt safe enough with him that she could cross the rainbow bridge. Knowing that they are pain free and can see and run again brings a little peace of mind and helps to ease a wee bit of the heartache

I am so sorry. That had to be hard for your son but I hope he takes comfort that she wasn't alone even though it was so hard for him.
