Locked up Dauchsund

Postby Kingfisher » Thu Feb 23, 2017 8:53 pm

I got @3 yr old male that I rescued off the kill pile. His name us Milo. Been trouble from the get go w malidies but he's got a heart. He seemed locked up tonight for a bit w his back twisted in the rear. He straightened out on his own. My question is can you give em a shot of ??something to "help" their hip back woes? Thanks in advance.

Dauchsunds are the epitome of "A can do spirit in a can't do body" great little dogs.
It's a shame their extra long spine often leads to so many problems. Sorry I don't have any good suggestions.
Their back pains often turn the little guys into biters, especially around rough handling kids to protect themselves.

Sad but true. Vet's often can do surgeries that help but pretty expensive and no guarantees usually

You got that right. My wife had a miniature that thought she was a real dog. Unfortunately she encountered a couple of real dogs. She lost.

Kingfisher - my little JRussel X Dauch had back problems at a stage...here is the thread.

At the time I did quite a bit of reading up on the matter and saved this article, it gave me far more info that the vet that helped me could. Perhaps it will help you too...
