Expressing The Bladder For A Paralyzed Dog



The Dodger development team at Dodgerslist is proud to announce a new video!  This video shows in detail how to express the bladder. After you've had the required hands-on demonstration from your vet, viewing this movie will be a useful follow up to the lesson.  Read more about expressing the bladder and bowel at Dodgerslist.

What a great resource Dodgerslist is. There's always a link to them 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.

I did this successfully for my dachshund for five years. He was not fully paralyzed, but he had lost the feeling for urination and defecation. He had a completely happy life and passed away at the age of 15.
There is no way I would have my best friend "put to sleep" just because he had lost bowel and bladder control.
This video should make a huge difference.
