    ~ No, he has partial use, mainly pushing and some lifting. He gets around good, however will never have full range of motion with his back legs. He also gets clogged up and needs to have assistance pushing his poop out, this is more needed during the cooler months.

    ~ Thank you, we are blessed he is still with us, he still needs constant intervention and help at times, however he has a strong drive for life and seems to relish these days.

    That's wonderful to hear he's doing well. I'm touched by all your hard work in keeping him healthy and happy; it's so heart-warming! :<3:
