|Too Cute to be in so much pain|
Mom took her to the vets where a different doctor reviewed the previous x-rays. This doctor thought she saw something and ordered an different view. The results were clear showing either a ruptured or slipped disc near her rib cage. The doctor was amazed how sweet Deliah was even with the level of pain she was feeling. She tried to give kisses to all the techs and never tried to bite.
So Deliah is on cage rest for two weeks and will see the chiropractor for some acupuncture on Monday. We are hoping the acupuncture will be enough of a solution and keep her out of back surgery.
With Degenerative Disc Disease Deliah will always have to be careful, but hopefully we can make sure her quality of life still meets acceptable standards to keep her happy.
Okay so everyone needs to send in Foal Pool guesses to get my mind off worrying about Deliah! There are three entries so far and plenty of chances to win a prize. And here is the video mash up I did for Roscoe.
