Hello!  I'm not technically new here...found the forum awhile back the first year I had my powderpuff boy but things got busy and the forum fell by the wayside so...sorry for disappearing!

 

I just recently found out my sweet boy has IVDD and it kinda blindsided us...I did alot of research before getting him and that was not one of the health issues I was on the look out for.  He had surgery on his back a little over a week ago and is healing well, I was wondering if there were any other crested parents out there dealing with the same thing?  I know few enough crested people already and non of them are familiar with it at all.  Once he's fully recovered we're going to have to make lifestyle changes, no more jumping around!!  Which will be 'interesting' as I'll have to train it out of him...he's naturally a very bouncy boy.  :unsure:

OrangeKatt,

 

Like you, not new here but this is a first post.  Also, like you, I am now taking the IVDD journey with my CC baby.  Ollie is a hairy hairless.  He will turn 4 yo on Apr 5th.

 

He went suddenly lame yesterday morning and I rushed him to his vet.  The diagnosis was a blindside for me as well as this is not a condition common to CC.  Ollie has lost all control of his hindquarters, bowel and bladder.  He still has deep pain sensation in his hind feet so no indication for surgery at this time.

 

He is on pain and anti-inflammatory meds and receiving laser treatments.  I have no idea if he will ever walk again but I have great hope.  I found this website very helpful...it is geared toward dachshunds in whom the condition is much more common...  www.dodgerslist.com

 

Please keep posting to let us know how your baby is doing and I will try to do the same. 

 

Dawn

Oh my...my baby deteriorated from Stage 2 yesterday morning to Stage 5 this morning after veterinary intervention.  Saw  a neuro vet this afternoon and my boy is now in surgery.

Any updates on the surgery outcome? It has to be a scary time for you.
