Dachshunds Going to Rehab in the News

What a great pic! This is pretty red smooth 'Biscuit,' a four-year-old miniature dachshund working out on the water treadmill at the office of Veterinarian Ava Frick in Union, Mo. Thanks to Darla W. for sending the link to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, where they had a look at Dr. Frick's practice. Here's an excerpt: "For some animals, coming here is their last hope," Frick explains. "It's a challenge to try to find something to help them. This place came about because of pain. I wanted to find a way for animals to benefit from pain relief like people do. I knew there had to be a way that what helps people could help animals, too," she said.
At the Animal Fitness Center, Frick incorporates holistic care along with rehabilitation, pain management, chiropractic, acupuncture and general health assessment. She has studied physical therapy used on people to help animals. Read all about it at the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Learn about dachshunds and Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) at Dodger's List. What a great resource. There's always a link to Dodger's List in the links column on your right. They have a very active discussion list, and are real pros when it comes to offering advice for IVDD dachshunds and general dachshund health.
