Jackie is my 5 year old Dapple Dachshund, on January 14th she was showing signs of being sick but what I was unaware of is that her symptons were signs of IVDD. That night she went down and has not walked since. I could not afford the $5500 surgery at the emergency vet and even my vet (who is amazing) offered me lower, $3800 for the surgery I also could not afford that. I would like to get the lower totalled surgery if possible. Right now I am doing Conservative treatment which is strict crate rest and a lot of meds. She is on Steroids, Valium, Antiacids, Glucosamine and Lactulose. I need to refill most of these weekly or bi weekly. That is on top of the pee pads since she is incontinent now and the bi weekly vet visits. If I cannot get the surgery or the conservative treatment does not work then I will need to get her a doggy wheelchair which is also quite a bit of money.
Anything helps really. I started a fundraiser on another site and it crashed so I needed to move to a more reliable site. Thank you in advance from Jackie and I.
