Future expectations

Future expectations

There is good expectation for each IVDD dog. Many do regain the ability to walk. The most important recovery is for the dog to be pain free allowing him to resume a good quality of life… happy and pain free. There is always the possibility for return of leg and bladder control with time and patience. In the meantime, dogs do not consider themselves handicapped, they adjust and move forward with life, a good quality of life… enjoying life the same happy, loving way as always.
