    UnhappyNeed Advice

    Yesterday my 3 1/2 year old lab was running after a rabbit and she turned sharp and her back legs went one way and her front legs went the other way. She needed to have emergency surgery last night because of a rupture vertebrae in her back. Her back legs at this point are still not moving however she can feel pain when you squeeze between her toes. Has anyone had this type of injury or surgery, we are just looking for advice?

    How horrible; I am so sorry. Can't help with advice since I've never heard of this before but if you have a Veterinary School near you I would call them and make an appointment.

    Sorry I too have no advice to share but wanted to wish your pup a speedy recovery, how frightening for you all.

    Your pup is in our prayers.

    It sounds like a portion of the spinal cord was trapped by a ruptured disc (between two vertebrae). If so, it may take some time for motor control to return. I think it's good news that she has sensation.

    If she feels deep pain, there's hope. You guys are in my thoughts, and your girl will definitely be in my prayers.

    Just wanted to say I'm sorry, and I sure hope it all turns out OK. It does seem like a good thing that she can feel her toes.
