yesterday we took ozzy to the vet and she looked over the x rays and the write up from the emergency vet and she also checked ozzy over and she seems to think he has Coon Hound Fever.
it's not fully researched but basically they have found that if a dog is bit by a raccoon it becomes paralyzed a couple weeks later. steroids is the treatment so thats what we are going to continue.
he's already showing improvement.
when she checked his reflexes and deep pinch pain and he responded to both so that means he's beginning to regain feeling!
if he doesnt continue showing improvement then she wants to take a couple more x rays because she thinks he could possibly have a tumor. something showed on one of the x rays but not the other..so we might have those done in a day or two.
according to her scales and the emergency vet scale he has lost 13 pounds.
he hadn't eaten anything since thursday but tonight he finally ate!
i bought this for him http://www.handicappedpets.com/resleash/
it arrived today and it's great!
now he can walk around a bit and it's easier getting him in and out of the house
oh yea and i shaved him because he tends to pee on himself cause he cant get up so this will make it easier to keep him clean...i'll try to get pics of him tomorrow
