On Thursday evening my dachshund, Bella, was acting very strange. She was over in a corner lying down, shaking, acting very funny. The next morning I was at work when my daughter called to say Bella couldn't move her back legs. I left work immediately and came home to take her to the vet. The vet took x-rays which showed she had a bulging disk. She gave her a steroid shot and put her on crate rest for 1 month. She wants to see her in 1 week. If there is no improvement, she will send her to a neurologist. As of right now, there is no improvement. In fact, I think she is worse. She is completely incontinent and no bowel control. I am just devastated. I love this dog. My children love this dog. She is a complete joy. So much personality, and now within 1 day..she can't move the lower half of her body. Does anyone else have dachshunds in their family? I know they are at risk of this with their spine being so long. I just need to know that maybe this treatment will work..that after being confined she will get the feeling back in her legs. I have been crying since Friday morning. My dogs are so much a part of our family. I just need some hope.
