My dachshund is 4 years old and about 8 months ago was diagnosed with disc disease. Yesterday she got paralysis and stopped using her hind legs completely. The vet gave her anti-inflammatories, pain meds, and a laser treatment. It cost me $250 for all that and the visit yesterday. They told me to call the neurologist because surgery is my best bet if I want her to walk again. I’m sure the MRI alone is going to cost lot and the surgery of Fortune. But I watched one of your videos and you rehabilitating a beagle who had paralysis. What can I do? Is there hope for my Zoey?
