Sunday, Puppy Sunday: Chuy in crisis

Chuy had a health scare yesterday, and we had to go to the vet. Hopefully it's just a pulled muscle in his back, but there's also the danger of IVDD. He seems to get relief from the pain killer they gave me for him. Hoping for the best.
Update: Chuy has been on painkillers for a week, but gradually he showed improvement in mobility and comfort levels.  I think he must have pulled a muscle.  Now he's his usual spry, jaunty self, to my delight.  :)

Oh, my goodness...I wish I could send a get well card to Chuy! He looks so concerned.

Baby aspirin is a cheap and viable pain killer in a dog that size. I grew up with a dachshund who at 7yrs blew a disc. One cortisone shot and a year or so on baby aspirin, and he lived pain free until death at 16.

Will keep Chuy in prayer!

Poor Chuy baby. Hoping he gets better soon.
