So, Barnie - 5 year old male yellow - just got back from the vet - they did every scan, x-ray, even a teeth cleaning imagineable.

he's ok - definitely needs to lose weight - we're going to put him on EVO -- anyone have any experience with EVO? And definitely going to up his exercise...

Also, he has something called bone bridging -- it's a genetic spinal thing which is why he's been in discomfort...

have to give him anti inflammatory and pain meds for a few days than another check up next week...

waiting on more details from vet and i'll see x-rays when i take him back next week - but it sounds like he'll recover, then have flare ups now and again for the rest of his life...

anyone have any experience with this?????????

thanks
