Ruby is still in the vets, she is now showing some signs of pain, which the vet said is a good thing as it means she is getting back feeling.
They are going to keep her a few more days and monitor her, vet said she is not out of the woods yet but there is hope

That's good Pippa.
Fingers crossed that there's more improvement over the coming days.Must be agony on your SIL waiting.

The little one is home, she came home today
She is on meds (not sure what) and my SIL has to keep her quiet and not allow any walking etc. She is to be kept confined until she is able to walk again and not be allow to drag the legs behind her.
As far as I know they managed to get the discs back in place and she will be able to walk again when she gets more strength back in the hind legs, but she must be allowed to heal.
My SIL was just on to me looking for something to keep her confined but I don't have anything as I don't use crates for my three.
I only have a puppy pen which I have broken and use as a divider for mine when feeding and for bed time.
If anyone in north dublin knows where I can get a cheap 2nd hand crate please let me know and I can tell her.

That's great news! -- I can loan her a crate if she'd like. Creating a small pen would be a good idea though.

My SIL got sorted with a pen... and Ruby is doing well so far, although she said it's a nightmare keeping her still!

If she needs the crate, just let me know.

Ruby is doing very well
She had a courseof 4 weekly (as in every 4 weeks) injections for the past while and gets her last this week.
She is back to her normal self and has almost full use of her legs.
