Good morning,
I want to say that I had written back in April about my dog who I suspect has IVDD. I took Dr. Magnifico’s advice and went to another veterinarian other than the one who told me my only option was surgery. This new veterinarian said she suspects my fur baby has IVDD but instead of saying his only option was surgery, she continued to give me the RX for steroids. She said she became a vet because her own dog had IVDD and had surgery and it did not rectify the situation. She said no dog should be made to suffer and if he improves on the steroids she would not withhold care. What a breath of fresh air!!! My dog has been on the steroids for a little bit now and is doing so much better. He is able to walk around without much of a limp, sit in his window, and play with us. He is so much better. I’m not sure how long it will help but we are grateful and I appreciate your advice to get a second opinion and do not give up. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
