Here is my little Cosmo boy....what a sweet face. Cosmo is having some issues. For the past couple of months we have noticed he is having some difficulty with his hind quarters. Took him to the vet here in Florida and she thought it might be his knees. Yesterday he had to have an infected tooth removed so while he was under anesthesia they took the opportunity to x-ray his knees and back. Unfortunately it looks as tho his problem is in the spine. She didn't give us a very good prognosis....not much they can do and it will probably continue to deteriorate. However, she admitted she was no expert and told us we should definitely talk to a vet with more experience in this area. I'm taking his x rays and records to our vet back in Indiana...we'll see what they have to say. Then there is always Purdue Veterinary Clinic in West Lafayette. Whatever the outcome, Cosmo's happiness and quality of life are foremost in our thoughts. At present, he doesn't seem to be having in pain or discomfort. He has just become more cautious in his movements because he knows something is just not right. I would appreciate all your prayers....or if you know of anyone or anything that might help us to help Cosmo, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or send me an email.
