I need some urgent advice. My dog started limping and got quiet a few days ago, then later that night lost the use of her back legs. I took her to the vet and she has been there since (3 1/2 days). She has no movement in her hind legs, no deep pain response, and no bladder control. An xray showed nothing. The vet says that surgery wont help, that she likely received some trauma, and that it isn't likely that she will improve. I don't know what to do. She is apparently not in pain, but I don't know what caused this (particularly as it was a gradual onset), and whether there is any chance that she will get better. I also don't know what to do - euthanasia or maybe we can try to look after her at home? I'd like to look after her if possible, but I don't know if I can. Does anyone have any advice on what could have caused this problem (it seems strange that there was such a gradual onset and not terrible pain if it was an injury). Also, I would love some advice on how hard it would be to look after her at home, particularly with regard to her not being able to urinate alone. I need some advice, please?
