Keeping my fingers crossed for Diesel too... something about this boy... although I have no experience with DM. He just seems young to me. I wonder if there is any possibility that it's a disc problem.

Thank you for keeping us posted.

:teary: I'm sad to report that we had to let Diesel go to the bridge :teary:

His foster Heidi has taken wonderful care of him these last 7 months, even diapering him for the last 2 months after he lost control of his bladder !!

The really sad part is the Vets at UF Gainesville had selected him to participate in the clinical trials of a new treatment for DM. Unfortunately, it was literally just a week too late for my big brave boy and he came down with a massive bladder infection just 2 days before the treatment was to start.

This time, he was unresponsive to treatment and clearly in pain by the end of the week and we knew it was time to let him go ............

:rip: big boy - we all miss you !!

I'm so sorry... I remember Diesel... he was another that really tugged at my heart. Thank you and Heidi for saving him.

Rest in peace sweet Diesel.
