My sweet boy does not feel well...

Tyler has been acting strangely since the end of last week. Thursday night he awoke and was pacing the floor. Friday morning, he did the same thing. Then he seemed fine for a bit, but when I came after work and tried walking him, he would barely move. He laid down in the road and huddled into a ball. He had to be carried home. When I brought him inside and called the vet, he crawled under our Christmas tree and laid down against the wall. He acts like he is in severe pain, and when he stands he arches his back and is afraid to move.

The vet saw him and gave him anti-inflammatory drugs, and said to give this ten days because he could have an injury or degeneration of a disc in his neck or upper back. The medicine works VERY well, but wears off hours before we can give another dose. During the 4- 5 hours he feels bad each day, he can barely move. He is clearly in pain. This is not like Tyler. It is heartbreaking to see him like this. I am worried to tears for him, and really scared of what this could be. It is like his spirit is completely broken when he is hurting.



Please send healing thoughts and/or prayers for Tyler. Hopefully it is something that can be treated. Thanks to much internet research and pondering of worst case scenarios, I have cried almost non-stop the past few hours, and a lot over the weekend and am pretty much a basketcase over this. Tyler is too young to have to deal with anything serious, and we haven't had nearly enough time with him. He has to be okay. Please let him be okay.

Poor baby. We will add Tyler to our puggy prayers.

Keep the faith, this happened to Chloe once. It was terrible. She would not move - just curled up and cried. We ended up taking her to the emergency vet and they believed she had strained/sprained her back. She got the anti-imflammatory drugs and pain meds and was good as gold within a couple of days!

We are keeping him in our prayers for sure! Make sure you are aggressive with your Vet. You could also get a second opinion and maybe see a holistic Vet. Acupuncture might be a good option for him.

Tyler is in our prayers. I would have a hard time waiting for that many days if he seems to not get any better while on the medicine. It's so hard to see them hurting.

You don't know us either, Sophia posted the info on the Cat Blogosphere. I am posting this on the Pet Prayer and Praise Blog, so you will get lots of prayers and purrrs, from all your kitty friends.

Bear, my 17-year old mini-poodle, had symptoms similar to that except we learned she had been running outdoors, caught her rear leg in a hole, turned and twisted the whole leg and part of her spine. A few hundred dollars of meds and rest and she was fine. That was 14 years ago!
