I have a poodle mix. Sandy is half poodle, 1/4 Shih Tzu and 1/4 maltese. She has a long torso which has caused her to injure a disk in her back. She is on kennel rest at this time. She has had a steroid shot and is on a daily dose of Rimadyl. I guess I would like some encouragement that she will get better with just kennel rest. She is able to walk but back legs are weak and give out. Any advice? My husband and I love this dog and would do anything to get her better.
