I see from one of the blogs that I follow, Poppy the Little Blond Chi, has had to have a second back surgery. We think she is a chiwiennie, chi/dachshund mix.
Many healing thoughts for her. I have also referred her parents to Dodger's List www.dodgerslist.com
It is full of information, not only for during an IVDD crisis, but for preventative measures and for post-treatment help as well. I would encourage everyone to visit their site.
IVDD (Invertebrate Disc Disease) is prevalent in doxies (1 in 4), other breeds can suffer disc injuries as well.
Get well soon Poppy,
Wishing Everyone a Very Merry Christmas!!!
