Herky's Bad Back

A week ago tonight Herky hurt his back.  We're not sure what he did exactly.  He was doing a bit of crazy run around the house earlier in the evening.  Then later in the evening he wouldn't stand up to go outside and go potty.  We took him out there, and he wouldn't do anything but lay in the grass.  We let him sleep it off that night, but it was the same thing the next morning.  T.J. took him to the vet first thing in the morning, and it was just a strained back.  He got some meds, and there was lots of snuggling going on afterwards.
The vet said no stairs and no jumping on furniture.  We are good about the stairs thanks to all the baby gates we have in our house.  But the furniture is another thing.  We were extra cautious the first day or two following him around, but now we let him do it.

So he is getting back to his normal chipper self.  It was so sad when he was hurting!!
Pin It!
