Cabal Again, the DiscDog....
This might have had more pictures tonight but I am having the devils own time trying to get my Blackberry to talk to my Computer. And I am still unraveling the Mysteries of my new little computer. (HA! Just figured out Spell Check. Lucky for you.)
Our Cabal is in sad shape. I noticed yesterday that he was having trouble moving and walking. He wasn't RIGHT. Called the vets, (he has several, hence the plural) and when I spoke to them this morning, they seemed to share my thoughts that it wasn't his leg, but perhaps, again neurological (Thank you again spell check)
After a visit today, it seems that he now has a Disc Problem, in the lower lumbar region. This may heal medically and it may not. About 80% of the time it will. If it doesn't, we MRI and go from there.
He is now on complete "Bed Rest" This means no playing, running, no off leash, on meds, only walking when needed, the remainder of the time lying DOWN and resting. For at least two weeks.
Walk in the park, really. Or not, as the case may be.
Not sure how I am going to explain this to him, he isn't getting it. You can't SAY "Look Doofus, what I wouldn't give for two weeks in bed, will you just lie DOWN??" If I am near him, he will be content and lie down, and so, I will be near him, except for working out, and visits to Bengals, when someone else will need to be.
I expect to be getting to know my Wee Laptop much better in the next few weeks.
Poor guy. I do feel for him, as it really doesn't seem fair, what he's been thru in the last few months. We have no idea what caused the disc trouble. May have been ongoing, like his neck and leg, for some years. He's on meds, and not in pain, tho, and I will take care of him.
There you have it.
Here's some Bengals lying on their Real Faux Fur Rug, in front of the fire, last night. All three of them. I have a feeling this is going to be THE popular spot this winter!
And yes, I do know Magic looks like a Pudding, there on the left, but here's some good news: He's started running on the Cat Wheel! Caught him on it, on the sly the other day. We will get video!
Love and Beasties,
