Intervertebral disc disease, or IVDD, is a spinal disorder that occurs as a result of a herniated intervertebral disc. Prevalent in chondrodystrophic dogs like Corgi’s, Beagles, Dachshunds, Basset Hounds, Pekingese, and Shih Tzus, the condition can lead to severe back pain, nerve damage, and even paralysis.

SeeFurFly's IVDD guide provides essential information dog owners should be aware of, including early signs of the disease, conservative management techniques like cage rest, controlled activity, canine acupuncture and rehabilitation treatments like hydrotherapy, cold laser therapy and red light treatments. The guide also provides a breakdown of the benefits and risks of surgery, emphasizing the critical importance of high-quality post-operative care.

SeeFurFly explores pharmaceutical and holistic methods of managing IVDD, highlighting anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, and pain relievers, as well as acupuncture and natural supplements.

Additionally, the guide considers the long-term disability that comes from IVDD, recommending raised food and water bowls, orthopedic beds, dog wheelchairs, harnesses, dog ramps, and other solutions that will make the lives of afflicted dogs more comfortable.

SeeFurFly is a comprehensive knowledge base on pet healthcare with up-to-date information on common diseases, therapy, rehabilitation, treatments, and more. With its detailed guide on IVDD, the platform hopes to elevate the standards of care for dogs living with the degenerative disc disease.

The guide states, “When your Dachshund shows signs of struggle with their front or back legs, it’s a situation that calls for immediate attention. Understanding what’s happening, why it’s happening, and how to address it is the first step towards providing relief and a potential full recovery for your beloved pet.”
