Zoey was not able to stand on her back end this morning. Going to vet. Please any prayers are appreciated.

You are in my thoughts. IVDD is awful. Praying for Zoey. You took her to the vet immediately so I am sure she will pull through.

Sending prayers for a speedy recovery. Zoey is just a few months older than my Gromit. Way too young to be so sick :-(

Thank you all for the prayers. They certainly helped. Zoey was much improved at the vet. In prednisone and strict crate rest. Had a slight fever so I have to recheck it myself at home in a hour. My kids think it's unbelievable how I have to check her temp. If it is still elevated dr wants to put Zoey on doxycycline for possible tick borne disease. She had anaplasmosis in the past. And of course Zoey had an accident in the waiting room. There I was all red faced having to ask someone to clean in up.

How wonderful to hear! I know crate rest is not easy for the dog or the parent.

That's funny about her accident at the vet. Cici was having her Xrays done in 2014 and they put her under. The technician said she was holding her when she was all groggy and Cici did her business in her lap. It had been many, many hours since she had gone and she was either seeking revenge for being taken to the vet, or was super relieved to finally let it out....in the right spot, of course.

Zoey is doing much better, but still sometimes a little wobbly on her right foreleg and back end. Does any one have experience with glucosamine? she goes back and forth between wobbly and prancing around, I don't know what's going on. She goes back soon for a check up,
Also my daughter's BF maine coon. He has the beginning of kidney disease so he needs follow up blood work, and some bowel issues

So glad to hear that things seem to be look up and will keep you both in my prayers for continued improvement. I wish I could help with information, but I have no experience with this type of issue. (knock wood!)

That's great! My neighbor has two cockers (one of them is 11 with back issues now) and she raves about glucosamine supplements. chondroitin is also good (those gross duck feet are a natural source).

My vet recommended Dasuquin for Riley-arthritis in both knees from patella surgeries. He was stiff and lame at times when he first would get up, couldn't jump up on the couch at times. It has worked awesome, no more stiffness or lameness at all. I really can highly recommend it, has worked wonders for Riley. One of those things that is expensive but worth it, IMO. Glad Zoey is doing better.

Personally I would go with this:
http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/msm-raw-fed-dogs/

2 weeks hopefuuly will show results.

If you go with the combined 3 ingredients you will never find out what works, that is the best starting point in my opinion and change to something else when it stops having an effect. Good luck.

What about turmeric. I have been checking out the Facebook group Tumeric User Group made by a vet in Australia. There are so many great stories of good results with dogs, horses and humans. The recipe is call the Golden paste. I just started taking it for myself. Is base on turmeric, coconut oil, black peppercorn and water. Check it out. Good luck and hope she gets better soon.

Yesterday was Zoey's birthday!
I have been giving her the golden paste thanks for the recommendation! She likes the paste, eats it on its own If offered that way. She is about the same, when I watch her it seems its her back knees that hurt? I don't know, when the vet checked her she didn't feel anything in her knees or hips. Somedays she is good others like this morning she is really slow to get up and walk.But once she is moving it seems like she peps up. She is on a raw diet (homemade, that I alternate with store bought raw)which helped the allergies,and loose poop, now I wonder if the raw is contributing to the stiffness,

Have you tried acupuncture or laser treatment? I'm not sure where you're located. I have an excellent vet in Orange, CA who does both.

Yes tumeric would be good as it raises the sulphur levels, like MSM, which helps the joints and connective tissue, no one knows why tumeric raises sulphur levels as it doesn't contain any but it works.
