Crumpet is a curly haired mixed breed border collie/ terrier with a weak hind end. She was actually a star in a Dr. Dolittle movie. She wants to try and play like crazy , but her back legs are shakey. Vet has X-rayed and diagnosed Lumbosacral Stenosis / Cauda Equina, which can stay the same or progress as a dog ages. It has a lot of different symptoms and shows different depending on the dog. She is on Metacam/Meloxicam for pain and inflammation relief, and of course supplements like glucosamine etc. She can be a little
vocal when goofing around and has a high pitched bark so not good for apartments etc. Crumpet has very high prey drive and cannot be around small creatures, cats, etc.
Moose is black and white with one blue and one brown eye. Moose is probably the most healthiest, active dog, and he may even have 4-5 years in him. He CAN have pretty bad irritable bowel syndrome if you accidentally give him new treats too quick etc - but after once or twice you will start to remember not to do that LOL. That's his only issue. As long as food is introduced slow he is great!
Lastly, we have 3 siblings (Caleb- black and white, Millie- brown black and white, and Cyan- brown black and white with a blue eye).
Caleb has been X-rayed and diagnosed Lumbosacral Stenosis / Cauda Equina, which can stay the same or progress as a dog ages. It has a lot of different symptoms and shows different depending on the dog. He is on Metacam/Meloxicam for pain and inflammation relief, and of course supplements like glucosamine etc. He shows his age both in looks and gait etc.
Millie and Cyan hide their age well. Their bloodwork indicted possible early kidney disease, which could be genetic, but other than that they are pretty healthy. Millie and Cyan are quite bonded.
