My dashund Chloe who is about 7 years old loss feeling in her back end suddenly a couple nights ago. We took her to the vet, they put her on steriods and pain medication and she has yet to regain sensation in her back legs. As much as I would have liked to have the surgery done to see if it would help her I cannot afford it. Have any of you had issues with your dashund having this problem? Did it ever get better without surgery? We have her in her pet bed and only take her out to put her in a clean fresh pet bed. Thankfully we may not have to move her to terribly much more as I bought her some doggie diapers yesterday. She is eating some and drinking a little, but her urine is strong smelling. I'm giving her a few days to see if she improves. I hear it can take up to two weeks to see if there will be any improvement?
