Buddy

Buddy is back home, he had no surgery. After the exams with X-Rays the med told us that the problems with his legs are not due to a slipped disc.
The diagnosis is: DEGENERATIVE MYELOPATHY.
He also told us that Buddy has no pain but there exists also no treatment for the myelopathy.

We are so sad as we now know that we don't have a lot more time with Buddy....perhaps a few months...

Good and bad news in the samt post. Good that he dindn´t need surgery and that he is not in pain, but to think that you don´t have a lot more time with him is awful. How old is he?
I can´t find words to comfort you. I´m so sorry.
