3 weeks since my dog was diagnosed with ivdd. I’m not seeing the light at the end of tunnel. He doesn’t seem to be getting better. He still cries and walks around in circles with his head low. He can walk for a few steps but then falls. Feeling so helpless. Any advice?

Hi Jasmine, have you contacted an orthopedic vet? Have you considered laser therapy, water therapy, etc? I understand your distress, and I have only barely followed your story so I’m not sure what you’ve done so far.

I’d definitely hit a specialist, then. Dr. Magnifico is right – neuro is the way to go (I wasn’t thinking straight when I suggested ortho). Good luck.

Hello,
I would seek the advice of a neurologist. And reassess pain management and quality of life. I think you need help from someone who can examine your pup and talk to you about Your thoughts. Sending ❤️ To you both.

How did the appt go on 12/23. My dog has already had three spinal surgeries and is now dealing with his 4th episode. I would like some good news. I hope he got better. We really thought we had it beat. He did great after surgery. I just wish it was cheaper.
