Since 2002, until there is a cure for IVDD, Dodgerslist has had your back

Passionate volunteers benefit dogs and owners

Tell every one you know about Dodgerslist. It’s a good feeling to know you may have saved a life.

Together we can make a difference in the effort against IVDD!

Linda Stowe inspired by

Dodger, the Dachshund

Dodger  had IVDD and was euthanized because of the lack of knowledge that conservative treatment IS a viable treatment option. When I heard of this sad story, immediately Dodgerslist was born with one goal in mind— save dogs’ lives.

If I could change things…

If this List can help just one person save a Dachsie, it’s worth it. I want to thank Linda and everyone else for all the work they are doing on this project. ~ Keri Thomas, owner of Dodger,  2002

Owner knowledge is the key to fighting the IVDD enemy

MEET THE PUBLIC with Dodgerslist free cards & brochures

You are a self-starter, love to meet people. With your love of dogs, you will meet many breeds prone to IVDD. Thank you for helping to educate those owners about the two treatments. “Putting to sleep” is not a treatment.

IVDD  occurs most commonly in small breed dogs such as the dachshund, pekingese, shih tzu, toy or miniature poodle, cocker spaniel, basset hound, Chihuahua, and beagle.  Order the free literature
