So I'm home without Dante.
The Neurologist examined him, found his right quad to be very painful, Dante did flip his back paw upright but I noticed he wouldn't turn it all the way upside down. He did knuckle and have a very slow flip back the other night right after a loud cry out.

The vet went to get the x-rays off the CD and discovered that he needed to use a different program and at the same time someone came in with a paralyzed dog.
frown
So Dante's further Dx got put on the back burner, he did say he does think it's lower back.

They'll call me later after he's had a chance to review the x-rays (He also had 2 surgeries scheduled this afternoon) and we'll discuss further Dx needs.

A special doctor is coming though that door? Will he have food?

Dante Update:
I just brought him home. It seems they had another emergency after I left and the vet just wants to spend more time evaluating Dante and his x-rays.
So I'll take him and drop him off on Friday morning (I have an appointment Thursday afternoon and no one wants him to have to rush through this and the vet is off on Wednesdays).
He did start Dante on Gabapentin, 300 mg x2 a day.
I'll fast Dante again in case they want to do any imaging that needs sedation.
Not how I wanted it to go, but at the same time if I went in there with Dante paralyzed I'd want him to be top priority!!

He's happy to be home, already sacked out in the living room.

Thank you all again for your kindness, advice, thoughts, well all of it.
I truly find it all helpful!

You've both been on my mind. I wish you knew more, but emergencies do happen as you said.

I love that picture taken from behind Dante. smile I've never thought to do that.

Hopefully Dante will be more comfortable until Friday with his new meds. Thank you for the updates. hugging
