I know it's been a while since you folks commented. But 48 hours ago my 7 and a half year old pug also suffered a spinal injury that has left his back legs without feeling or mobility. We are taking this one day at a time. And I'm encouraged to see slight movements in his toes and seeing him stretch his back legs a few times. But it's the hardest thing my fiance and I have ever had to do. I was wondering the outcome of your pugs? I hope the best. I know miracles can and do happen. And I also know everything happens for a reason and dogs are forever. Thank you for any responses.

I also have a pug that was injured in a tussle with another dog. She yelped in pain and lost control of her rear legs. I immediatley took her to the vet and X-rays did not give any info on her situation. She received two steroid shots and was sent home to rest. It has been 3 days now and no change. I am struggling with the thought of putting her down. If someone could please give me hope. I love my pug very much and have had her for seven years. Thanks

Would like to hear more about the prognosis. I have a pug that injured her spinal cord - X-rays indicate no breaks. She does have deep flexor pain in her hind legs but is unable to use them and just scoots around. She has been treated with steroids and is in complete cage rest to keep her quiet. I would love to hear about success stories and TIMELINES. I too perform massage and flex therapy on her hind legs in hopes she will recover.
