Re: Wobble in rear legs after IVDD

CarolC , Will let you know what develops. Made an appointment for a water therapy evaluation on 22 October. I've had a total of 10 wieners, started with 1, then had 2, then had 3, and now have 4. I do not know how much longer my 16.5 year old piebald will keep on chugging, but, when he leaves us, I...

Re: Wobble in rear legs after IVDD

Thank you both for your suggestions!! I am going to give a wheelchair a try. If there is progress, fine, if not, I can always donate it to the rescue where Peanut came from. Also, after doing some searches and phone calls, found a veterinary clinic with two certified water therapy doctors. They have...

Re: Wobble in rear legs after IVDD

critters and CarolC , Thank for your replies. Will check to see if there is anyone offering water therapy (underwater treadmill) around here. I think I did a general search, and did not find any, but, I'll do some phone calls. Still keep thinking about a wheelchair, and using it 2 or 3 times a day ...

Re: Wobble in rear legs after IVDD

CarolC , Thank you for all your good advice! :trophy: Did talk to the foster, and also was able to talk to the vet that gave little Peanut the laser treatments. I live in Illinois, and all the individuals that dealt with Peanut live in Tennessee. I saw him online, and went to TN to get him. Peanut ...

Re: Wobble in rear legs after IVDD

CarolC , Thank you for the very useful information! It is certainly appreciated. The situation I have with my little Peanut (chocolate/tan dachsie, 12 lbs) is that he was turned into an Animal Center to be euthanized, the center opted for a DNK, and he was taken in by a Rescue. His paper trail does...
