Does anyone have experience with living with a dog in a wheelchair? My dog that stayed with my parents when I moved-out woke-up five days ago, walked three steps and fell over screaming. He was paralyzed. A vet did perform back surgery (not sure what they did since I am hearing this information from my parents rather than the vet). The surgeon seems very confident he will start using his legs within a month or so, but I want to prepare for the worst. My parents are older and uncertain about caring for a dog in a wheelchair. If they can't handle him he'll obviously come stay with me, but I'd rather not take him away from my parents. I am hoping if I can get some information about dealing with a handicapped dog it might help them prepare for some of the issues that may come-up.
