Good evening everyone I am in of much guidance or advice. My beloved 10 year old Labrador has been diagnosed with having a slipped Disk (T2) and we are completely heartbroken - she has been suffering from lameness / balance since March last year. At the beginning it was thought it was triggered by an injury so advised to treat it like one. It improved through different intervals of time but symptoms/ lameness/ imbalance came back - medication has been changed various times also since nothing seems to work. Then she was diagnosed with Arthritis but only through normal examinations. So, After many trips to the vets on a weekly basis since beginning of this year ( due to not getting any better) an X-ray was done 2 weeks ago which showed nothing significant apart from the fact of not having Arthritis. Then, last week I insisted for a scan to be done which finally showed the slipped disk on (T2). The conversation with the vet was short over the phone at the time of given the diagnosis. However she seems to be struggling more to walk - Lameness, wobble and losing balance. I tried asking for a referral to a neurologist but have received little support with this referral from the vet, although the vet did say that without an MRI and actual diagnosis my loving dog can’t be treated. But so far nothing seems to be done by the vet and I have spent more than 2,000 on medication and tests - I am wondering if based on this I should place a complaint or change vets. Wonder if anyone has had a similar experience and how it was handled? I will be grateful for any guidance since I feel truly at a loss.
