My Brown Dog

My guy is not feeling well at all. In the last three days he has fallen three times and this last one was a doozie and seems to have really affected him.  His Cushings disease has taken almost all of his "back end" muscles in the last couple of months and he now losing the ability to get himself up and moving around on his own.  After a really long night on the floor with him we're heading off to the vet shortly.  Please keep us in your thoughts today.

Thanks
Jen

**Update**
We just got home and Jack is resting quietly.  Sadly though, the news is not good. It seems the Cushings has affected the nerves in his hind end and their signals are just not working very good. We have now added pain medicine to the others he takes in hopes they will take the pain away and enable to him move around easier.  We'll know in the next couple days if this will work.

It's so hard to see our animals age, I wish they could live forever... Though it's excruciating we must do whats best for them and we'll have some clear answers soon. Thank you for your prayers, I appreciate them so much.
