Beth has Hindquarter Weakness, aka Wobbly Butt. This is the way she came to us, but recently, it got a bit worse where she was falling down in the yard multiple times and couldn’t get herself back up. we took her to Caroline Animal Hospital to look at our options. We decided on acupuncture. By the end of the 20 minute session, Beth was actually sleeping. Sorry for the blurry picture from my Blackberry.She eats around her glucosamine/chrondroitin pills, so I got a mortar and pestle to grind it up, and she seems fine with that.
We also got her herbal biscuits from the vet that are supposed to be good for her condition. I think they make her gassy.
It didn’t help that a tick managed to swell her foot.
Ugly little bugger.
She can’t really get up on her own, but once up, she is pretty steady on her feet. We’re not expecting miracles. Don’t think she’ll be making any moves like this. Hopefully she’ll be steadier with each acupuncture session.
A parting shot of more recent boarders. Beth under the blankie, Kris’ dad with Murphy, Kris with Parker, then Stanley, Stella, Jaime, Billy, Jack, Allie, with Savannah and Sunny in the middle.
