“Dodgerslist is the premier website dedicated to information about paralysis in Dachshunds” –Jonathan M. Levine DVM, ACVIM (Neurology), Texas A & M University
Owners and vets won’t know a dog was born with IVDD until the first signs appear, typically when the dog is between 3 and 7 years old. This is why so many owners are blindsided when they see their dog showing symptoms or paralysis. Become educated should it happen to your dog.
