Loss of leg function
Thistle has been in a lot of pain lately. I got tramadol to add to her cocktail of drugs. Which meant I could back off the prednisone from 8 mg to 6mg, but she's still on high doses.
Today when I got home from work Thistle was walking slowly and limping. She is walking with her left hind foot curled under. She is aware that she's having trouble walking, but doesn't seem to know that the foot is not placed correctly. She's doesn't seem able to feel when I squeeze either left paw (front and rear).
I feel awful for her.
