Snicks woke us up at 430 this morning crying and we found him to be lame. Trip to emergency vet found he had pain sensation but no movement in right hind leg and limited in left - suspect back disc trouble. Suggested medical management for a few weeks. However once home started have more involved spasms and went to local vet who is not as optimistic and said to be thinking about what we want to do if not better in 24 hrs. We would consider surgery if seems likely to help not hurt him more. Also i remember some folks posting baout acupuncture and such. We are open to any input - therapy experience, certain docs good in this area, other advice as we consider what is best for Snicky, Please help ASAP - Snicky life depends on it

I have used Tampa Bay Vet Specialists for back surgeries on 2 doxies with much success. Dr. Oakes and Dr Cox are excellent. Both my dogs came through it with excellent results.

Look back in some of the old posts as well. I know we have had a few conversations regarding doctors for back surgery in the past.

I do know this, Keep him still. Crate rest is key until you see a back surgery doctor.

Also, check out dodgers list (www.dogerslist.com). A great resource.
