Sausage dog woes

Dogs, Photography, IVDD

My blog has been non-existent lately, partly due to our beloved little sausage dog Conrad developing the dreaded IVDD that is so sadly prevalent in dachshunds.

He started yelping when we picked him up, then started becoming wobbly on his back legs and, needless to say, we rushed him straight to the vets.

After strict crate rest did not help and he started showing symptoms of deteriorating he was rushed to Alton for an MRI scan followed by emergency spinal surgery.

Our poor little pup is currently on strict rest recovering from the surgery and I am doing daily physio exercises with him
