My 8 year old American lab presented with what appeared to be hip symptoms. That was June of 2011. The symptom came and went. Weakness and a funny trot was the initial sign. After checking for hip illness we opted for an MRI to make sure it wasn't brain. Symptoms began to be more regular over the summer. He began to get grouchy with other dogs in the family. We had a lumbar puncture performed to rule out tick disease. everything was ok but he failed the tests that are non invasive from the vet. It's important to have a vet familiar with this disease assess your dog. Now it is February 2012 and Jesse is struggling. Everyday he struggles to walk. Falls a lot. He can't control his bowels sometimes and walks away while peeing and doesn't seem o notice. He falls backwards into his poop while trying to go so he gets a daily butt bath. He enjoys swimming and a fast paced walk cause jogging is easier than walking.the doctor says e has no pain but I'm sure he gets sore and achy from struggling. I know his time is coming soon but he is alert and enjoys being around everyone still. There are wheelchairs and assistive devices for these dogs but they can only be used a little each day. Boots on his back paws seem to be best to keep his toenails from completely being scraped away and his knuckles from bleeding. The groomer can no longer groom him because he can't stand well enough to cooperate.i guess his last day will be when he no longer can stand without any assistance.
