Question by Andrew: Dog has compressed disc and can’t afford surgery?
Yesterday my dog oliver(jap.chin-poodle, 1 1/2 years old) suffered a compressed disc and it’s putting pressure on his spinal cord. I woke up in the morning and found him unable to walk or use either of his hine legs. I immediatley took him to the vet and they told me he would need a surgery that would cost between 7-10 thousand dollars. I can’t afford that. He’s now able to wag his tail, urinate, and poop, but cant use his hine legs (has some feeling in hine legs). Does anyone know of any non-surgery alternatives, i’ve heard that a dog chiropractor can be helpful. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

At my vet’s office one of the vets performs acupuncture. I’m not sure if I would have a chiropractor work on him, one wrong manipulation could be bad. Also Is your dog on an anti-inflammatory drug? I’m sorry. I wish you and your puppy Luck.
