He's been chewing at his hindquarters for a couple of weeks now. Raw skin... I've been treating it with a peroxide spray. Also a daily dose of Metacam.
Things were going well 'til yesterday morning... when he couldn't walk or even stand up.
I got a T-shirt onto him... for carrying purposes, and a date with the vet for 2:20 this afternoon. Hoping for a miracle cure but I'm concerned that he may not make it out alive.
Three weeks shy of his 16th birthday... :(

Oh I'm so so sorry. Our family dog lost the ability to stand when she aged but then regained it slowly after a couple days. It is possible. But I'm not sure how likely. I'm sure you will make the best choice given his comfort. He has lived a good long life.

I'm so sorry. Just want to respond with support. My elderly poodle could no longer get up and we put a harness with handles on her to be able to lift her up. Sending lots of hope to you.
