THE STORY:

UPDATE: George can no longer use his legs. We tried acupuncture, herbal remedies and crate rest with steroids. He is at the neurologist now and we did gthe pre-op bloodwork to see if he can handle the surgery. HIs liver enzymes are very very high - higher than they would expect from steroids...ultrasound is needed for $300 more...I don't know what to do anymore. Please help if you can. ANYTHING is appreciated that can get us a little closer to getting him the help he needs. The dr's believe he has a 70-80% chance of making a full recovery but his time is limited!! Please help us if you can. Thank you xoxox from George.

VETS PHONE NUMBER: Long Island veterinary specialists 516-501-1700

Hi everyone. My dachshund, George, is having back problems. It all started 6 months ago when he was diagnosed with IVDD with a calcified disc. He was perfectly fine after crate rest and meds, but has taken a turn for the worse this past weekend. I took him to the vet and it was clear George was losing basic functions like standing, walking and keeping his feet in place. Our vet recommended George see a neuro specialist, but unfortunately, we are struggling to pay our previous vet bill for our other dachshund, Rusty, back surgery that occurred this past June. We are unbelievably heartbroken that this is happening again...and we need help. My family and friends gave all they could for Rusty two months ago, and now George is at a loss. We appreciate any help. George is our baby, our best friend and he loves to play and run and fetch, and we don't want him to lose that. He just turned 7 years old on August 26th, and he has many years of life ahead of him. He is a very healthy dog besides this and we don't want to have him go paralyzed because of money. Please help us if you can.
