Bruno seems to have a ruptured disk. Since exact diagnosis wouldn’t change our treatment, I decided not to have him x-rayed or otherwise imaged. We’re not going to pursue surgical treatment.

He was in terrific pain. That seems to have subsided, but he’s paralyzed from the “waist” down. We’re trying a treatement of meds (painkillers and anti-inflammitories) and immobilizing him. Our hope is that he will recover control of pooping and peeing if the swelling goes down and maybe mobility.

This is very stressful. My stomach is twisting and turning. I saw a picture of a frenchi and almost started crying.

    Oh Honey, Gaely and I send Bruno and you our best, purest thoughts in hope that you all will find strength. Gaely has fused and bulging discs and she is in laser treatments. She has good days and bad days but the laser seems to help with mobility and she doesn’t seem to be in pain. Recent research reported at a Vet conference indicates that the laser stimulates the RNA and regrowth of cells. So there’s that, maybe down the road. I’ll be thinking of you!
