This thread has lots of different kinds of devices that can help with a dog has problems with mobility or balance: http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...e-devices.html (Assistive Devices). We relied heavily on the HelpEmUp harness when Charlie's arthritis and seizures made the stairs dangerous for him.

If you can't get Tesia to eat much, then it helps to make sure she gets the maximum calories and nutrients from a small amount of food. There are prescription foods that help. Charlie was fond of sardines packed in oil and of course green tripe is often recommended. Injections of vitamin B-12 can help to restore appetite, but if her mouth is sore, that won't help. If there concern about any blockage in her throat, then softer foods with more liquid might help.

Holding you and your sweet girl in my thoughts and prayers,
Lucy

Hoping that Tesia's appointment resulted in productive news. I have both a Lift-up and a Comfort sling that I can mail to you if you want them.

Thinking of both of you.
