    Wow, that is fantastic news. Its such a worry when our little guys are sick. I sometimes think I get more upset than I did when my son was little, lol Or maybe it was just so long ago?

    Oh that is SUCH good news, Trudy

    We'll be thinking of Bailey and hoping he now goes from strength to strength.
    Do post some pictures of him if you can.

    All good wishes from me and mine

    Bailey was able to come home tonight. He is still a little sore but is otherwise doing great. The surgeon was very impressed with his progress. Here are a few shots. He is on antibiotic for 2 weeks and on dexamethasone (i think thats spelled properly) for 2 days, then every other day for a week.

    He was very thirsty and dopey when we got home


    His pretty haircut

    Beailey looks really well concsidering what he has been through. I am really sorry to jump into your thread but I need urgent related advice. One of my dogs had fenestration ( spelling ) last week, and he has not improved. To the point where I have had to take hime back to the specialist this morning, they are doing a CRT scan with dye to have a second look. His MRI was clear other than this minor disc degeneration. The specialist this morning said he was concerned with his limb disorientation, he stagers quite a lot, and when going for Number 2'2 he quite often collapes to the side. They are looking to see if further disc problems are evident, but he has already mentioned the possiblity of further surgery, and I am still in shock to remember the procedure but it is to remove the discs. I am so worried I will rush my decision and make a mistake, but I don't want him to be in discomfort / pain. He is a brave little lad, and still has period of his old loving self. Any advice greatly appreciated as I am expecting a call in the next 4 hours.
    Thanks

    Poor Bailey. Incision looks good. He probably feels better than he has in a long time.Leo has a bad disc, not anything like what Bailey had. We will probably try acupuncture first if the need arises. Glad Bailey is on the mend and doing so well.
