    Thanks for the info and tips! I’m going the non surgical route.
    So this week I took Bella to work with me Monday to Thursday.... I believe she has had a very good week resting under my nose....
    I’ve already noticed she’s not hunching her back as much. Stopped in at the Vet clinic and the Vet noticed how much better she was doing also.
    I’m still having issues getting Bella into my car.

    So I’ll keep her resting over the next 6 to 8 weeks and we’ll see.

    Bella is extremely lucky to have such a wonderful & caring owner! I am sure all will be fine. One day at a time. Best wishes...

    Ok so I told you I was having problems getting Bella into my car.... and that I’ve been lifting up her back end helping her into the back of my car..... well last night while I was slicing zucchini for my lasagna .... silly me I was distracted and I sliced my finger at the end down to the bone.... 8 stitches and one X-ray later....

    Not sure how I’ll be able to lift Bella’s back end into my car now.... any ideas? My milk carts didn’t work. It has to be lite enough for me to left into my car

    Oh no! Poor Bella and poor you. The grocery bag slings work well. Darn it. I had a lift harness from Al that was way too big that I donated just last month. I think if you only need to help her into the car the grocery bag thing will work. I only went with my custom (lol, by me) lift harness because Al needed more front end help at the end. The grocery bag worked great when it was just his rear end needing a little help.

    Thank you Boxergirl.... part of the issue is I have 3 herniated disks in my back from a car accident.... my body healed everywhere except my back....My dr tells me I can't lift anything heavier then 25lbs .... Bella's back end is just a little over that I think...lol

    I have the Solvit ramp mentioned above. It works great when Kryten is willing to use it.

    Thank you for asking Bailey's Mom.....
    Well she will be looking and feeling better because I'm making her take it easy.... then my husband forgets and lets her outside before I get home without restriction.... as soon as she sees me pull in she goes nuts running in circles.....then pays the price for the next week again..... I'm stopping in to the vets tonight... I'm hinting about getting them to cast her both hind legs for 6 to 8 weeks.... replacing every week or so. We use to do it to injured horses way back when. More so on the high strong young ones.
    Bella fits that discription high strong horse o_O
