IVDD Vet Questions
Questions for the Veterinary Neurosurgeon or Orthopedist
Not every dachshund with a back or neck issue needs a neurosurgeon, but more often than not, this becomes the path for many doxies exhibiting the symptoms of disc disease. Your journey to this specialist may begin with your general care veterinarian or may result from a trip to the veterinary emergency room. Either way, ask questions and stay involved in your doxies' medical care.
