IVDD Post Integrat TI
IVDD Post-Injury Issues Following Alternative Treatment
The treatment path followed following medical treatment, surgery, or during the integrative treatment path is critical for the maximum return of functionality for dogs with IVDD. A well thought out schedule and attention to the needs of the recovering doxie are the minimal requirements for support. It is important to remember that although full recovery may not come for weeks or even months, the steps taken during those first days of the recovery process may make all the difference to you and your doxie.
DRBC has utilized the integrative treatment path as both a primary and adjunctive form of treatment. Please read the case below. The goal for the outcome was the maximum recovery of function.
This section, like the other post-treatment sections of this site, has been divided into three parts:
