This is a story about Bentley the dachshund, who 15 days ago lost all hopes of walking, ever again. See what he does now and you’ll not believe it!
Bentley the dachshund, just 15 days before this video was taken, was paralyzed with IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease). Yes he couldn’t move at all. But 15 days later, here he is, playing and running like nothing happened. The IVDD is a serious condition that is more common in dogs than in cats.
According to Dr. Becker, “There are a number of symptoms that can occur with intervertebral disc disease, but they’re also seen with other conditions, which is why an accurate diagnosis is needed. Signs you should watch for include reluctance to move the neck and head or a lowered head — some animals only move their eyes to look at you. They don’t want to move their head or neck because it’s painful. An animal holding his head low and shifting just his eyes to look at you is definitely suspicious for IVDD.”
She continued to state, “Other symptoms can include back pain, stiffness, crying out unexpectedly when touched or while moving, abdominal tenderness or tenseness, an arched back or hunched posture, incomplete or inappropriate urination, dragging one or more legs, toeing or knuckling over when walking or standing, weakness, stiffness, an odd or tentative gait, reluctance to sit or stand, or an unwillingness to jump.”
If you see these symptoms in your fur babies, make sure you contact your vet immediately to stop it from destroying your pup’s health. Please SHARE this message with your friends too.
Lucky for Bentley, he received very successful treatment and watching him, you would never know that just 15 days earlier he was paralyzed. This is incredible to see!
