    yeah thats what I have gotten from my bf's grandma. Again, I wasn't there to get all the details so I am unsure if anything was interpreted wrong or not expressed to me. I am already annoyed I could not have been there. But yes, she did quote that and said that the surgery is almost 100%, but we need to get X-Rays done first... I don't know maybe she just felt it in her legs? I have no idea.

    they are closed right now until monday :[ which is when she is going for x-rays.

    - - - Updated - - -

    i honestly just dont understand. this is all a roller coaster for me... she is playing right now, a little limp and when she is stepping over something she tucks that leg in to avoid hitting it or using pressure on it, but she is walking...

    yeah, don't presume anything needs to be done for certain until x-rays are taken and they know exactly what's wrong. Then, I would those x-rays to an orthopedic specialist and see what they have to say. She might just need pain management and not full blown surgery. But again, no one can really say anything for certain without x-rays.

    Glad she is eating now. I agree, see what the vet says after the x-rays, then get a second opinion from an orthopedic specialist if you don't like what the vet has to say. I hope it was just a pinched nerve and she starts to improve.

    Totally agree... How can they know any of that without seeing x-rays

    So after a talk with some people, we have found out the vet we went to is "money hungry" and only cares about the money and not the pet... Not taking those chances. So I have now requested an appointment online with a vet that has actually been good to my family members loved ones, and we will see what this second opinion does for us on monday.

    Thank you, that is good news! I was thinking I smelled a fish in the other vet! Looking forward to hearing what the other vet says, so Jovi can get better.

    I'm glad to hear she is eating, and has a little improvement I'm also happy that you are getting a second opinion from another vet. I can't understand why the other vet wouldn't have taken an X-ray first? That's the first thing my vet did after bulldozer jumped out of my arms as a puppy and sprained his paw/foot. She felt his legs, and said she couldn't feel anything wrong or broken, but wanted an X-ray to see if anything else was going on. She actually X-rayed both of his front legs so she could compare the two. I hope Jovi continues to improve, and that the other vet can figure out what is causing the problems with her legs. I hope it isn't anything serious. Please keep us posted.

    I know this is a weird question, but has she been into any macadamia nuts? I had 2 yorkies that ate macadamias and were literally paralyzed in the back legs for 4 days.
