So, I'm already freaking out. Came home at lunch, checked on Panzer (8 wks old) all was fine, let him out, fed, potty etc. Left about 1:30. Returned home about 5 pm went to check and he somehow got himself wedged in the wire create corner trying to escape.he got his body through but was pinched in right at the waist/hips. I ripped it apart, got him out and he couldn't stand on his back legs.

Rushed to the vet, they did x-rays and the only concern my vet had was one of his vertebrae had a little more spacing than the others. Good points, by that point he could sit up on his back legs, move toes tail and had reflexes. Concern, didn't show sphincter reflex. Left leg was of more concern than right, as it was cooler to touch when he first came in but was warming up.

He's staying overnight, getting a steroid injection. In the morning she'll check and update, possible additional x-rays and our k laser therapy. She's hoping is just swelling/trauma and he'll be much better in the a.m.

I am beside myself. I feel like total shit and hoping all is okay. I just don't know.

Just wanted to ad,
I know your feeling like a monster, it's ok, its normal to feel that way. If anyone can get themselves in a jam, it will be a puppy.

I once ran over my puppy with the ATV, we rushed Chance off to the vet and he did xrays and all was well. I can still remember what my vet said that day. "Thank goodness for rubber bones" he was referring to the fact that the bones are still springy so at that age, they are a lot tougher then you'd think..†

Im going to hope that the swelling will be down enough in the morning for him to come home. Please don't beat yourself up. This is just a freak accident. {Hugs}

Oh, my goodness. Panzer needs to perfect that Houdini act.

I know you feel bad, but it was nothing you could have anticipated. The laser should help a lot. That and being so young.

I can picture you tearing that crate apart frantically.

Thanks guys. To top it all of, Mike was working so I'm doing all of this with a 3 year old, trying to stay sane. If I didn't have Andon with me I would have stayed until close at 8 pm just to be with him.

I pray he's going to be okay. I hate to think how traumatized that poor boy was, being alone, stuck and in pain. The morning cannot come soon enough.

Ouch! Hope the guy's OK. How scary. Maybe an airline style crate would be better for Mr. Let's get in a fix?
