Not sure what finanacial help you would get in America. We are in the UK. We do have other American members who would know and also maybe some UK members who would also know the answer to your question.

My Bernese had similar last year he didn't lose the use of his legs entirely and when he did it was ony for a couple of days while in the vet hospital. We unfortunatley had to have him put to sleep this year February but he did have a few rare diseases which had been dormant since he was very young he was also 4. His deseases were incurable. Hopefully with what your vet says it sounds like the problem may be able to be sorted for you and your little one.

Fingers crossed they can help.

Did you not take out insurance for your dog?

I have no experience of this but wanted to say how very sorry I am to read what has happened.

In England we have a charity called the People's Dispensary For Sick Animals, who help out people's pets who need veterinary treatment whose owners are on benefits. I don't know if there is something similar in America?

It must be a great worry for you, I do hope your little dog gets the help she needs xx

I used to live in the US but didn't have any animals at the time so I'm not aware of any charities or organisations that might be able to help.

One of my clients has a 12 yr old daschund who had this happen just over a week ago and has had her back operated on and from I last heard is doing well, but it very expensive, so luckily she has insurance.

I am so sorry to read this, and although I have no help to offer I just want to send my very best wishes for a good outcome.

We have 8 rescued pets. Insurance would be way too expensive.
