Every dachshund owner's worst nightmare came true for me last Sunday. I came home from an all day Pet First Aid course, to find Pogo lying paralized on the kitchen floor. I gently wrapped him in a blanket, into a crate in the car and off to the Veterinary Emergency Clinic we raced.
I have had experience with 4 downed dachshunds, but they all came to me already injured and past treatment. I could not do any more damange to them by trying different therapies, etc. This is my first "ground zeor" experience, with a walking dog who suddenly became injured. Here is Pogo's "zipper". He is now on 6 weeks crate rest.
