I have a gentle castrated 6 y/o male that was attacked by his brother. There are no visible signs of injury but Buddy will not stand. The vet says there is nothing wrong physically with Buddy and he has hoisted him and he will not use his legs. He has been this way for 5 days. He is still at the vet with no one around him. He eats, drinks, pees, and poos fine and is alert and will move his head. My vet says I should put him down. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get him past his fear or has this trauma pushed him past the point of redemption? I thought about bringing him home to a stall that is surrounded by the girls. I am open to any ideas. I have to bring him home from the vet tomorrow or euthanize him. Help!
My sweet boy passed away at the vet on Aug 6th. The vet had no idea why he would not stand. Unsure if vet did an Xray to see if his back was broken but just called me to come get the body. Am changing vets. I could tell vet did not believe Buddy could NOT stand on his own. I and the vet staff never saw him stand up. What a waste.
