(best people ever) they took him back for a few weeks and put him on steroids, low dose.. got him walking again.. my boy lived 6 years after that.. we lost him due to other issues on valentines days this year,, miss him dearly, but we concluded the vet twisted his back during surgery and caused his issues.. hope your baby gets better.. oh, we have a new vet now that cares for our animals.. very happy now.. praying for your baby..

    How horrifying, Gail, did that Vet ever take responsibility?
    Even tho he walked afterwards did he limp or have pain, just
    can't believe this!

    I'm so sorry for your loss of Odie ;(

    Paul, did you ever get a video sent (I was gone awhile).
    How is he walking now? Also, did you put him on a MSM
    and/or Glucosomine supplement?

    he was walking good.. he did drag his toe nail some.. i never had to trim them on the back..lol.. but we did have to leave him on the steroids for almost a year.. it was a low dose and when i would start to ween him off he started getting week in legs so we put him back on it until he was able to do it without the meds..

    no the vet would not say if anything happened.. I had him back to the specialist a few weeks before we lost him and they remembered him (im assuming it was in his chart records) and asked how we got him walking..

    he was the best dog ever i will never forget him.. was there for me when i was spending my nights in hospital with my ill father.. i would come home and he seemed to know i was upset and snuggled with me.. i think sometimes he hung on for me because we lost him just a couple days after we laid my dad to rest.. like odie knew i needed him at the time.. Never forget him.. i called him my perfect man.. lol

    no we did not have him on anything else.. we couldnt prove that vet did it but i always wondered why they said he could have had bruising ?? i think they must know they did something to him.. either twisted his back or something.. he was only 5 months old when it happened.. he always has a place in my heart... its still hard but i can smile when i think of him with the tears now..-10987710_10204724017799350_9185457870491423831_n-1-jpg my perfect man..

    Wow, such a beautiful tribute to Odie, brought tears to my eyes, he was so wonderful &
    very handsome as well, a great bully head on him, love it, red & white is my fav coloring.

    I cared for my Mother in my home for 4 years as she declined in later stages of Alzheimer's.
    Adopted my 1st bully, Brutus, during that time and have precious memories of them together.
    Just 2 months later my husband died suddenly and Brutus got me thru that, then 5 months
    later Brutus died after dental surgery. No words for how hard I crashed into a pit of despair.
    EBN (which I had just joined) was my salvation AND my blessing of Cami, living with me now!
    @Davidh...called me when a friend of his needed to rehome her,
    Cami has helped bring me thru all the dark days of these past 2 years. So, I truly understand
    what love & gratitude you have for beloved Odie. EBN has a Memorial for our tributes to our
    bullies, you should put this there. Again, my condolences for his loss and for the loss of your
    Father, I'm so very sorry, how devastating your losses so close together, amazing we survive
    that great a heartbreak. Life can be impossibly cruel & hard, glad you are here with us.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    thank you so much.. its hard when im afraid when i mention it to some people that they think im crazy, that he was just a dog.. he was much much more then that.. i know if it wasnt for the other babies i could not have made it through those days.. and i know what you mean about life being cruel.. i have multiple sclerosis and i like to think that i am Made Strong as i would say but no matter how strong a person is there are days that it helps having someone there to lean on.. so sorry for your loss. i feel your pain. keep your furbabies close.. it helped me..

    Then I really do relate with many things you're dealing with as I have
    several autoimmune diseases, making life harder than it needs to be
    and will break even the strongest person. You have my respect & my
    sympathy, Gail, I add you to my prayer list.
