As many of you may know my dearly beloved weiner dog Oscar somehow hurt his back. He started out with just a cry when I picked him up, then he was ok for a few days, and then he got horribly worse and couldn't even walk. I had to rush him to the ER vet. They gave him a pain pill, steroids, and a muscle relaxer. They also told me to confine him to a crate for 3 weeks straight. This isn't an easy task, since I have never had my dog in a crate, ever! I think its more stressful on me to see his sad face wondering what he did and why I am torchering him. I know its for the best because I want him to get better and not get worse. After 3 days he is doing ok. I can tell that he isn't in pain anymore and that he is ready to get back to normal....normal is going to have to wait another 2 1/2 weeks for him.
I am taking him to the normal vet tomorrow for a follow-up visit, so hopefully they will have some good news for me. I would just die is something happened to him. He is only going to be 7 years old.
Anyways, I had to take a picture of him sleeping in the crate. He is actually becoming used to it and relaxing in it more. He is just soo cute!
