Pet of the Month: April 2010 #4
“Nessie” Lewis – Dachshund
Nessie was an active, energetic dog, keeping the Lewis family moving at all times. Nessie experienced a sudden onset of pelvic limb dysfunction and dragging her rear limbs. In pain, Nessie presented to RMVN for help. An acute intervertebral disc extrusion was identified in her mid-back on MRI testing. Following successful decompressive surgery, mom reports that Nessie is ‘bouncing’ once again and proud to pose in her dapper vest provided by RMVN. Our staff fell in love with Nessie. What a cutie pie!
