Thank goodness…Nigel is okay!!!
He is in great pain due to a bad disk in his neck, but the vet is confident that with a few powerful medications he’ll be up and running again in a few weeks.
His physical reaction to the pain included very exaggerated muscle spasms, panic attacks which resulted in panting and heart racing, and he whimpered from the pain. We were totally afraid he was in heart failure, or something totally traumatic.
It’s not great news because weenie dogs do suffer from disk degenerative disease, and it is obviously debilitating… but compared to what we were worried about, this is fantastic news!
Thank you for all of your kind notes. Princess Nigel sends his sincerest appreciation.
New Nigel photos will surely be coming SOON!
