My Merlin

My Whippet Merlin had an event this Monday. He went down spread eagle and started shaking really bad. I thought he may of had a stroke...

Tuesday morning I took him to the vet. Merlin has arthritis in the spine and maybe a slipped disc. The vet gave me some meds for him and if he doesn't improve in the next few days they want to xray the spine. He is having trouble with his hind legs. He cant get up on the couch or chairs and I am lifting him for that. Merlin is a rescue, so I don't know his actual age but he is about 12 years old.. Please say some prayers for him.

He can walk a little but his hind legs are very shaky.. I am so worried....


  1. I am so sorry to hear this. Hugs to all of you...

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Merlin. That must have been so scary for both of you. I hope that the meds. help! Hero suffers from arthritis too, but it is controlled very well by meds.
    Sending healing prayers Merlin's way. So glad he found such a loving home. (Thanks for rescuing).
    and Thank you for stopping by my blog.

  3. I feel so bad about this..Haven't visited and was sad to read about Merlin..Will be praying for him..keep us posted.
    How are you doing?
    Have a great weekend.

  4. Such a sweet face...I hope Merlin is feeling better with his pain meds on board.
