Did you know that you can learn just about anything from watching a YouTube video? Seriously, there are people who film instructional information on every subject imaginable and the one I stumbled across, early during Sophie’s illness, saved my dog’s life. “I learned how to help a paralyzed dog use the bathroom, on YouTube.”
Once Sophie’s hind legs stopped functioning altogether, my husband Ken and I realized that we had two very big obstacles to overcome to manage her care. We had to come up with a way to move our dog from room to room around the house and we had to learn how to express her bladder to keep away potential infections.
