🚨Update from Minnie Foster mom: Our sweet Minnie went to see the orthopedic doctor this morning and here is a summary of what I understand our path will be... 1st step is a CT scan this Thursday (and possibly a mylegram and/or spinal tap) to identify if this is truly an orthopedic issue involving her actual cervical disc(s) and which ones are damaged. If it appears so, a mylegram may provide further information. There are risks with the mylegram to include seizures but she will be monitored closely.
The fact that all 4 legs are affected leads the doctor to believe it originates in the cervical (neck) area. She doesn't have some of the classic symptoms yet does present with some others. She's a complicated case. She doesn't appear to be in any pain which is unusual but not unheard of. If she is a candidate for surgery, we will move forward quickly and there is a 75%-80% chance of full recovery and she will stay approximately 5 days in puppy hospital. I like those odds and feel she deserves that chance.
There was some talk and concern that what is going on with her could have been an infection, either viral or bacterial, that was left untreated and caused some neuro deficit or that there may be a congenital defect she has had since birth. Neither of these situations could be "fixed" and we would have to decide how to proceed to provide Minnie the best option for a quality of life. My money is on an orthopedic problem with a definite fix.
Things are moving forward and she is tolerating all the treatments up to this point very well. We ask that you continue to pray 🙏🏻 and send positive thoughts ❤️. I ask you to consider donating 💰to Minnie's care through NBBR @nobordersbulldogrescue as you can imagine the financial responsibility that this has caused.
