Basil aka nanny

I was referred to you by someone on the Senior Pugs Rule Facebook page. My Basil turns 15 tomorrow and had a check up today. The vet said his heart sounded good. He is doing pretty good for his age... except his back legs. She said she feels like his issues are mostly due to weakness and loss of muscle mass rather than just pain. I have been trying to treat the pain but I think he really just needs some extra support. I have a three year old and a one year old (human children). And we call Basil Nanny because he sees it as his job to be with them every second of the day. We carry him all over the place because he wants to be with us and makes sure we don’t forget to carry him up steps or take him outside with us. He is the best dog to our family and I’d love to help him do his Nanny job a little easier. Thank you.

Vet recommendation:

I am writing on behalf of Basil's mom about her dog, Basil.  I have been Basil's veterinarian for the better part of 8 years.  He has dealt with several health issues throughout his life and battled them all better than I could ever imagine!  He now has some neurologic deficits in the hind end and has problems walking and keeping his balance in the hind end. 

He still has the desire to go out in the yard with the owners and to follow them around, but he just can't do it somedays.  I think that a wheelchair will increase his quality of life immeasurably at this point.  Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any further questions.  I can not think of many of my patients and clients that could benefit from this anymore than this family.
