Today my little one, Brad-Pitt, was diagnosed as having a compressed disk. He had been limping for about a week so we were super concerned and took him to the vet. He is now on two medications: one anti-inflammatory and another to boost his cartilage, which he'll be on for life. The vet said he should refrain from rough housing with larger dogs (which is what caused it in the first place, my father-in-law has a boxer) and should generally take it easy for the time being.
Have any of you had this experience with your Bostons? I'm so so so worried for little BP. He was always and continues to be such a happy and healthy dog, it breaks my heart to know that he could be in any discomfort or pain - and even more so that he could struggle with a bad hip later in life. :(
So any advice or just comfort would be great.
