My four year old daschund "Grumpy" has had to have a hemilaminectomy due to a ruptured disc. He had it done 6 days ago. He is still not walking at all. I know it takes time but shouldn't he be showing some signs?
i have a dachsund that is 10 + years old. I have been fortunate as to the bad back thing. However he did throw it out once and could only drag himself around for about a week and a half. I took him to a vet and he suggested running a bathtub with warm water just enough to take the weight off his legs but not enough to make him swim. this was a form of physical therapy and has done wonders for him. That was many years ago and he has recovered in my opinion 100%.
