He can't have surgery because his elbows are also bad. That is why it want done years ago.
Very also said that the dm is so progressed that he probably shouldn't be sedated again. They have him a bit of ace to take thexrays and he almost didn't make it through the night.
He lost all muscle control in front and rear, urinated all over himself, eyes sunken, he couldn't even lift his head.
Not to mention I honestly dont have the $3000 it would cozy for stem cell therapy.
His vet said that the muscle mass was almost entirely gone. In less than a month he has lost over 10 lbs. 2 Weeks ago, he was running around the yard posting. Then he went from occasionally dragging his feet to falling down the stairs. He is constantly dragging his feet and occasionally "crossing over"
There are signs that there its kidney and or liver damage. He has a fever. His left rest hick is swollen to the size of my forearm and they can't figure out why.
The muscle its what WA holding his hip into place and now it its grinding off bits of bone with every step.
