YAAAY! That's so awesome! Celebrate! Sounds like the Pred is doing it's thing. That's good.
Did you ever think you'd be so happy about seeing him sit up? It's crazy how much we take for granted until something happens. Stay pawsitive. All these "little" things add up to one big happy recovered Tripawd!

He walked!!!!! This evening he looked like he needed to go outside and tried to get up. I used a support sling I have for around his waist to help. He got up and with a little help hopped all the way outside and went to the bathroom. I literally cried happy tears. Hopefully things will just go up from here. We have found a few rehabilitation specialist. None are very close so I am trying to figure out who will be a good fix for him. I would like to find a clinic with aqua therapy as an option. Thank you for listening to all our woes every bit of encouragement helps so much!
