Default Slipped disc

16 yr old Golden Retriever's hind legs dropped while walking. Has not been
able to walk on his own since that happened. If his tail is held in the air
a bit - perhaps to relieve the pressure on the spine - he walks, and runs (a
canter). He has plenty of energy and desire, but cannot get up, or stay up,
on his own. Vet thought an inflamation so doubled his Duramaxx. No relief
yet - 12 days. Any thoughts or suggestions? Any device that could be worn
to straighten or support the spine?

Barring x-rays, has your vet tested for arthritis in the lower spine? I had
a coon dog mix, female, that developed arthritis in the lower spine, and it
eventually caused her demise. Reason I mention this is that the symptoms
you talk about seem similar to the ones she experienced. Good luck to you.
