Hi – Oskar is a coton and was recently diagnosed with IVDD while we were checking into stomach issues. I am trying to do everything to prevent it getting worse … we have never noticed any symptoms … he is slightly overweight. I am however, wondering about his leash. I have kept him on a leather round collar but I know he pulls on it and this can’t be good for him and mostly likely worse for the IVDD. Do you have any recommendations concerning leashes? Thank you

Hello,
I would absolutely switch to a harness! You don’t want any pressure on the spine if at all possible. Also absolutely work on the weight. It’s the best way to preserve and protect the spinal cord and vertebra. I have lots of info on my blog and YouTube channel. Good luck
