Patient of the Day: Maddie, Miniature Dachshund
Maddie came to us after being examined by her regular vet on May 2nd for back pain and ataxia. She was given medications to go home with, but her pain and wobbliness did not resolve. She was so painful that she was brought here to VRCC Emergency, and by 1am, Maddie was not able to use her hind legs. She was transferred to us straight away for MRI and back surgery, and has been much more comfortable since! She is improving daily (she can stand on her own today!!!), and burrows deep into her blanket like Dachshunds LOVE to do. We sure will miss her when she goes home, which should be any day now!
