I am so sorry for your loss, she was one lucky dog to be an Airstreamer full time. It's never easy to lose them, what a cutie.

So sorry to hear that Mike. It is so tough to lose a family member. You will be in our thoughts.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Such a dreadfully hard thing, to put a dog down.

May many happy memories comfort you,


Maggie

Best,

Hemilaminectomy allowed our dog to walk again!

We recently learned the importance of having our dogs examined by a good veterinarian as soon as we see changes in the way our dogs walk. While on a recent camping trip we noticed our 6-year old Corgi, Tasha, could not keep up with our 10-year old Corgi, Mac, when going on walks.

Upon return home, we took her to our local vet, who started her on medications, but she lost the ability to use her back legs over the weekend, so our vet referred her to the Veterinary Specialty Hospital in San Diego. She still had deep pain sensation in her back legs so she was a candidate for surgery, but the window of opportunity for success was closing quickly.

An MRI showed a herniated disc at T13-L1 and she had a left hemilaminectomy with fenestrations from T12-T13 to L2-L3 to remove large amounts of herniated disc material.

She is now home, walking, and making an excellent recovery. She is on an activity progression schedule with a full resumption of normal activities by Christmas.

We are thankful to the wonderful veterinarians and the state-of-the art veterinary hospitals of today... we just need to avail our pets to them in a timely manner!

See her detailed story with photos: "Shifting sands and disc"
