    If her pain is because of a nerve issue, once the pain is blocked,, they can usually walk. In my Ana's case, the pain was so intense, she couldn't move without just excruciating pain. But..every one will be different.. I'm hoping and praying its this sort of problem.

    @JAKEISGREAT, @desertskybulldogs @Izzy's Mom, @Texas Carol Been at the vet specialist since 9:20 this morning, just got to my office. There is nothing / not even medications that will help Frankie. neurololgist and orthopedic said there is nothing to that can be done Frankie has too much going on Neurotically and Orthopedically. I am VERY devastated. He told me it was up to me, he said its not going to hurt her, but he told me that I am the one whos with her and I really need to evaluate what they said and determine what I think is best. :,(

    Oh my dear friend, what devastating news, I am such so terribly sorry.

    Teared up instantly as I thought of how much you're reeling in shock & horror,
    how much your heart is hurting, I very much hope you've got someone to be
    with you to give comforting hugs & help as you are trying to absorb this news.

    If there were words to say to ease your heartbreak, I'd yell them over & over!

    Please know, I believe in the goodness & love of GOD and I believe in the power
    of prayer, I will continue to lift both of you before GOD's ear for a miracle.

    Sending hugs of support, sympathy & hope, much love for you & Frankie.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I'm so sorry. I just am sad beyond words. Having had a beloved dog with neurological issues, I had prepared myself for just the words you received. in the end, we had an option. Devastating that you don't have one. If it were me, I would try the Gabapentin. It just takes a few doses to know if it's helping.. It won't make anything worse and then you will know you tried it. I'm so..so sorry .

    They didn't get me a specific dx. They just both ( neurologist, orthopedic surgeon) kept tell me that "she has so much going on, and if they focused on fixing her knees, and hips still neurological would get worse.. He told me that im her owner and I need to chose and and make a decision because I live with her.... so I know what best.. is

    @JAKEISGREAT,@2bullymoma @Texas Carol, I am NOT giving up on my baby, I had her vet call in the Gabapentin. She had her 1st dose last night and 2nd this morning. I am NOT letting her go without a fight.. so, I should know if its going to work within a few days?
