I am a disabled viet nam vet on Social Security - - I live in a 5th wheel trailer with my best friends - two mini dachshunds they have been my security and best buds. One of them has hurt his back and the vet says he needs surgery which will cost upwards of 2500 dollars. I do not want to lose my friend because I don,t hsve the money needed to do the surgery. I would be willing to sell our 5th wheel or make payments for whatever it costs. need help for Buster
What kind of injury? How bad is the injury? Now granted depending on what is going on with your baby this may not work, but we had a client who's dach. had a back injury that the vet said required surgery. She could not afford the surgery either. My boss told her to ask the vet for pregnazone(sorry for the bad spelling) and put the dog on constant cage rest for about 6-8wks. It worked, the dog is fine now.
I am unsure of the extent of her dog injury, and The choice is yours to try. The cage rest is extensive in that the dog does absolutly nothing. Take it out on a leash to potty, and a bit of walking. NO running, jumping, playing etc. strict cage rest. I wish you the best of luck
I just read your aarticle. Is he okay? This might be a little late, but how old is he and where do do live? My mother(i still have to finish high school!;) ) has been a vet for years and would know about the situation. Since dachshunds are very long dogs, it's no surprise they have back problems. I hope he's okay.
