He's doing great now, and stating to get bored inside his crate
The taper of the pred starts tomorrow (first "skip a day") and he has had no pain meds for a week. His rear end is still a little wobbly, but he definitely can feel and use his feet very well. No more poops in the crate!
I feel bad keeping him locked up, but he has at least four more weeks of strict crate rest. The chiro sees him on Tuesday afternoon.
