Thanks for all the awesome ideas : ]

I used to give her Uncle Jimmy's Hanging Balls, and she LOVED them. They'd make a big sticky mess all over her face, and I'd have to shampoo her face, but that's a sacrifice I'll be willing to make while she's recovering, haha.



RedHawk - Yeah, that's it. We tried acupuncture and physical therapy and neither helped, so we're going to try the surgery.

Really? How does that work? I have never heard that before.

Everyone gave some great advice. I agree... take her outside whenever you can, for walks and hand-grazing. Spend as much time as you can with her, just brushing her and loving her up. Is there a chance she can be turned out in a small pen for part of the day?

She can eventually. Not for a few weeks, I think.

I'll definitely be out there every day with her.

That's great that you can spend each day with her... that will definitely help! Good luck!
