An Evening of Dachshunds for Tim!
7 February 2018
Tim Easter, a member of the surgical team at Willows Referral Service, was invited to speak on the expert panel at Clent Hills Vets Client Evening. The evening's topic was Intervertebral Disc Disease in the Dachshund. This was attended by over thirty dachshund owners and their dogs.
Disc disease is very common in Dachshunds and can be very distressing, resulting in weakness of the limbs or paralysis. Tim discussed the cause, symptoms and treatment of disc disease, and demonstrated a typical neurological examination on Ted, a very willing (and neurologically normal) daxie.
The surgical and neurology teams at Willows see a high number of Dachshunds with disc disease and, with our on-site MRI and state of the art surgical facilities, are able to return most dogs to an excellent quality of life.
