All Will Be Better Soon Piper

Please keep our Colorado Springs, Colorado, pal 'Piper' in your thoughts and prayers as she undergoes surgery today for IVDD,  Intervertebral Disc Disease.  Here's to a complete recovery Piper!  Her human, Cynthia Morgan wrote us last night:

Just because I feel like I know you and Joey and Maggie, I wanted to ask for prayers. Piper got up today and couldn't walk. She is going into spinal surgery tomorrow. The prognosis looks good, but it is still worrisome. I have lots of good thoughts about surgeries and getting better from your blog. Thank you for sharing your babies with me and the rest of the world. :)


Remember, if your Dachshund shows signs and symptoms of back issues, or goes completely down where they can't walk, there are options out there!  Take your dog to your vet immediately, and listen to the good advice offered at Dodgerslist, your Dachshund disc disease/IVDD resource.  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.

Cyndy here -- I just went and visited Piper. She is on fentanyl so she is completely doped. Tongue hanging half out, eyes unfocused, multiple iv and cord stuff. She did give a little eye/nose twitch of recognition when I gave her lots of kisses. They said she pulled through fine. I will go back and visit her tonight. If everything keeps going well, she can go home sometime tomorrow. Then cage rest for 4-6 weeks. Thank you everyone for the good thoughts and wishes! We so appreciate it!
