Patient of the Day: Pumpkin, Dachshund
This is Pumpkin, a 9-year-old female Dachshund, who came into us as a transfer from the Emergency Department on February 1st. She presented painful, unable to walk, and had been declining for 7 days. Dr. Lane performed an MRI and diagnosed a ruptured disc, then took her to surgery and performed a hemilaminectomy. Her surgery was on the 1st, and she is now able to push up off her hind limbs and take a few steps! With time, hopefully she will become stronger and be able to walk again. She is patiently waiting for the day she can go home and relax with her mom!
