My little chihuahua was just diagnosed with IVDD. This came on so suddenly and out of nowhere. Because of her age (11) and an enlarged heart she’s not a good candidate for surgery. I’m doing all I can caring for her at home as far as crate rest and such and I started a raw diet on her. My vet currently has her on Prednisone and Methocarbamol.
She is having trouble pooping and I’d like to know if anyone has any suggestions that may help. Also since she can’t move I keep her on a potty pad so that she can urinate when she needs to. I keep her very clean but I have noticed a small skin infection coming up on her tail. Is there anything that I can use to help treat that? Thank you for any and all suggestions.
