Thankfully, veterinary medicine has come a long way, and IVDD is no longer a death sentence for affected dogs.

With the utmost respect to our amazing Veterinary professionals, signs and symptoms of IVDD can also be indicative of a number of other conditions.  A correct diagnosis of IVDD can be the difference between paralysis or successful recovery so please don’t wait for X-Rays or wait until morning/Monday/a better time/checking on Facebook Groups or Google!

If in doubt, seek a 2nd opinion or ask to be referred to a Specialist Centre.  These are the ones who have the expertise and the equipment to accurately diagnose your dog.
