    Find someone who has time/energy to care for him.

    Surrender him to animal shelter (it's a no kill shelter)

    Keep him indefinitely.

    @nataliegrace90:  Look into chiropractic or physical therapy work, might cost a couple hundred over a bit of time but could make a huge difference. I would suggest at least getting a consultation done with a different form of medicine. And try and be a bit open with the doctors, they might try to work something out, same thing as going through a rescue, you might be able to get a lower rate on the work being done. 

     

    If I always listened to my first vet from day 1… my dog would still have a host of issues and be eating science diet 😛

    Vet here. If the spinal innervation to his bladder was compromised with his injury (which it sounds like from what you are describing) this is not something that is fixable with surgery. If you and your husband do not feel you can continue bladder expressions at home, especially with plans to expand your family, humane euthanasia is a completely reasonable decision.
