The vet put Mac on an IV and gave him a different steroid than the prednisone he'd been taking for the past month. Mac spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night at the vet, and was finally able to come home today.
He's able to walk again, but he's very wobbly and his back end seems crooked and week. I also noticed he's holding his front paws weirdly.
I love this dog so much; I'm praying so hard that he'll get better. All of my friends are praying too. I hate to see him like this.
I have to crate him, except for when he goes out to pee. I let him out when we got home from the vet, then crated him til 8PM. Then he had a bathroom break, then back in the crate until 11. Now he's back in the crate, sleeping.
I pray that Mac will be OK; he has to be.
Ben cried all night because he was jealous; he wanted to be in the crate, too, but there's no room. I had to go get a box, set it on it's side, and put a pillow on the bottom, so Ben could have a faux crate of his own. Here's a photo:
