49 viewsThis is JenR's beloved Hercules and Xena! Hercules had his first IVDD incident when he was 6.5 yo. With crate rest, steroids and acupuncture, he walked for another 18 months! Then after a routine dental cleaning, we came home after dinner that evening and he couldn't walk. The vet sd that sometimes a dog can relax too much during anesthesia and his spinal column 'collapsed' at that weak spot. He didn't recover the 2nd time and lived out his life a happy, healthy, pain-free dog that I LOVED w/ all my heart!Aug 06, 2018

70 viewsChrisM's' Oscar is 19 years old and going strong. He has been through multiple episodes of disk problems. With conservative treatment, including early drug intervention and crate rest he’s recovered quickly from each episode. There is always hope.
He lost his brother from heart failure about 3 years ago, who also had disk issues. He too always recovered with strict conservative treatment.
