Update Nando’s Wheels
So many of you have kindly asked about Nando and the status of his wheels, thank you so much for your concern. We got Nando’s wheelchair but he cannot use it, it doesn’t work for him right now. He has been walking with his head tilted to the left and hanging down and when we attached the cart he went over in a somersault. He can barely walk right now, I took him to the Vet the other day who diagnosed IVD, Idiopathic Vestibular Disease or as she put it Old Dog Vestibular Disease. It turns out that he has a severe inner ear infection in both ears which could be the reason he falls and tilts to the left. He is on antibiotics both oral and in his ears. I contacted Harlan at Red Flyer and told him I would return the wheelchair but he said to hang on to it in the hopes that the antibiotics would help Nando so that he can use it.
He was having a hard time before but now this has made things a hundred times worse and more difficult. Watching him try to move is heartbreaking and I honestly didn’t know what was wrong. I thought maybe a stroke, He is struggling but keeps trying to walk, he is so determined. I have to hold him up to eat, he still has a great appetite despite all of this, Nando is my foodie pug. Keep him in your thoughts.
Suzanne and Nando
