We agreed to take this little 5 year old, owner surrendered special needs baby to continue his care. He has IVDD (collapse of disc space T9-T10) with paralysis. He also has chronic otitis, skin issues and abrasions from dragging.
We’ve done a full examination and diagnostics to assess his status and determine the best course of treatment. The disc problem is beyond repair but he is seeing Dr. G at VetNaturally for herbals and acupuncture and laser for the wounds. We are also doing a daily exercise program to try to wave off atrophy of his muscles and water therapy at home. And he gets weekly “spa” baths. At this time his ears are clear and not a problem. Skin is quiet for now. We also suspect he has nerve irritation from the paralysis. We are currently looking to get him fitted for wheels and will be continuing his holistic treatments.
