It's been a very exhausting week.
Athena has not been to play care nor has she done much else She's been pretty bad.
On Tuesday it was absolutely horrible to watch. She could not hold herself up at all. She was literally dragging her lower body around. Could barely hold herself up.
We've never seen it this bad.
Wonder if something happened at day care that might have been "normal" for other dogs, but enough to mess her up. A new person was there, so I will never know. All I know is this is bad for her and we've never ever seen it like this.
She sleeps like the dead when she is sleeping (definitely her meds). We've done a lot of assisting and carrying her up and down the stairs.
We purchased a special harness for her. This will be helpful for even when she gets better.
Considering wheels for her as well. We'll wait a bit more on that.
We're getting her a "Help 'Em Up Dog Harness".
Today she seems to be doing a bit better getting around. Still falling and paws still rolling under, but she's stayed on her legs more than she has the past several days!.
Through this all, she's still in good spirits. Wanting to get cuddles and attention. Barking along with her siblings.. Wanting to be in the room with us. So that's a good thing.
She won't be attending day care anytime soon though. We want her to get some rest and some more time on the meds.
Keep her in your thoughts!
