Update on my baby. All summer we had seen no improvement and I have taken him to 4 more vets, got acupuncture for him, and the diagnosis all the same. either we take him for an MRI but that might not help. They told me he had no feeling in his back legs and would never walk again, that his quality of life is bad, (he was just laying around)
and i should put him down. Well for me that was not an option my little boy was eating normal and although some days he could not lift his head, I would see his tail wagging and I just knew he would be fine. 4 days ago I saw him trying to push himself to stand, back legs were so weak(he has not walked since June and he could not stand by himself to do his business...I would hold him) he just feel over, but he kept trying. I am writing this now tears falling down my face and my little boy is slowly walking around! YES he is walking, slowly, wobbly but walking!!!!! I can not believe it!! I can not believe all 6 (yes 6) vets all told me to he will NEVER walk again and to put him down. All my baby needed was some time to heal. he may never run again, but I don't care ..MY BABY CAN WALK!! Please thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!! And please...watch the vets, the gave the wrong diagnosis .....you know your baby better than anyone, trust your gut feeling.

I am just seeing this and so glad I kept on reading through to the very last one. I am so happy he's walking again and that you didn't listen to the vets about euthanasia! Even baby steps in regaining his ability to walk again are a huge progress after all the time he spent not being able to walk. His muscles need to regain their strength. Keep doing what you're doing and I'll keep him in my prayers that he continues to progress. Hey, do they have doggy physical therapists?

Yes, they do---Kitzel has one here in Athens who got her degree in TN! They can work wonders sometimes. I would also try laser treatments in conjunction w/the PT. It is important that he isn't pushed too hard. Good luck & God's speed. Please keep us up-dated.
