    Default Healing Habernasch: Asking for help

    Hello hello Bulldog Community!

    I am the proud momma of my 1 and a half year English Bulldog, Habernasch. He is quite a special little dude and the biggest lover (aren't they all?!).
    A year ago Habernasch was diagnosed with kyphosis - a spinal condition where the shape of the vertebrae compresses the spine causes him slight paralysis to his rear legs. About two weeks ago he had a case of paralysis and spent over a week with the neurologist getting treatment as he was also in pain. It has been an on going battle of how to treat him.

    Right now, they want to keep him on steroids for the rest of his life to help regain some walking abilities. I want him to walk more than anything, but the steroids impact him and his personality so much, his quality of life is decreasing. I am beginning to opt-in for the option of surgery to see if we can take care of this once and for all. Surgery is incredibly expensive, and I know you don't know me as a person, but asking for help is not what I do.

    My friend, Jennifer, is helping to fund and to assist in little Hab's surgery and medical bills. I know we all have them, I just don't know what else to do for my little guy. If anyone has suggestions on these cases, I would love to hear more, or if you are able to or know of any way to support these situations financially, I would also be curious to hear more. I have currently maxed out my own credit cards, and his Care Credit accounts. I have a full time job/salary/etc in Colorado, but I am unable to support the cost of surgery.

    He is so beloved.

    Thanks in advance for any advice, loving thoughts, or anything for my baby.

    Please PM user if you choose to help.

    So very sorry for all your boy is going through.... sending lots of healing prayers to you and Hab.

    I apologize, but I have to remove the link to the go fund me page as we do not allow them on the forum. if anyone wants to help, they can contact you via private message and you can provide the link to them.... I wish you all the best.

    also... here is a thread about where you can get some financial assistance, if you qualify.

    Me again

    My girl had a bad spine as well, we used laser therapy to assist her... not sure if that will be of any help or if you are using it, but ask your vet about it.

    Thanks, Christine. I actually have done laser therapy in the past. It has helped temporarily, but Im afraid I think he's developed a little too far for it. I've looked into some underwater rehabs as well.

    I am so sorry to hear about your baby, I will pray for you all to get through this!

    I am wondering if any Joint supplements would help his rear legs? Nujoint plus has a money back guarantee so it may be worth a try to see if it helps!
