Buddy was an active part of the Helling family until a sudden onset of severe pain stopped his days of fun. Buddy was referred to Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology for diagnosis and therapy. Buddy underwent magnetic resonance imaging and was diagnosed with a lateralized cervical (neck) intervertebral disc extrusion. Two surgeries later, Buddy is back at home with his family, pain free and enjoying walks and running with out pain. We admire your courage Buddy and your family’s dedication to a wonderful dog. Here’s to many more romps in the park.
