Diego in his blanket after waking up from a sleep. This is an old photo of him from 2017, but I’m posting it today because he’s at the vet’s office after getting an x-ray.
He hasn’t been himself for some time and let out loud yelps from time to time but he was diagnosed with Intervertebral disc disease (IVDD) by the vet this afternoon.
It’s the very early stages of the disease and with lots of care we can treat him. No jumping off sofas, beds, or chairs. No walks even. We have to wrap him in cotton wool for the next six weeks.
He’ll get better.
