Poor dear Jack
Saturday September 16, 2017 It’s never easy with older dogs as they age faster than we do. We’ve noticed that our labradoodle Jack has been a little weak in the hind end lately. Yesterday he could not get up at all and somehow I got him to the vet. He’s 90 pounds so getting him into the car was a bit of a challenge. They helped me get him out of the car on a stretcher and x-rays revealed severe arthritis of the spine. We are trying oral steroids as a temporary relief but I know we can’t do that for too long. He’s feeling a little better this morning and I’m grateful for whatever time we have with him.
