My dog was diagnosed five weeks ago with IVDD and I chose conservative treatment for 8-12 weeks. She got worse everyday and by week four I had to feed her by syringe and by the fifth week she stopped eating all together. The pain grew stronger and she lost all mobility in her hind legs and her front legs. Now, I can’t get her to eat at all and she’s getting weaker every day.

Is this normal for week five and when should I consider euthanasia?

Hello,
I’m sorry to hear about your dog. You absolutely need to see a veterinarian or a veterinary neurologist ASAP. This is critical that she see someone today. Tomorrow morning at the latest. Only they can tell you whether euthanasia is the best option for her.
