You’ve had really good and thorough responses posted, but the dragging of the toes did catch my eyes. This can also be an indication of a neurological issue and I’m wondering if you’ve already addressed that. You mentioned having vets out a few times so that may have already been ruled out, but I did want to mention it just in case you thought it worth considering. So sorry you’re going through this with your boy. I can’t imagine how frustrating to want to be able to help him when there is obviously something causing distress but not be able to pinpoint what he needs for relief. Hopefully you’ve found a solution and he is already on his way to healing and recovery.
