Dog Owners Want Everyone to Know Warning Signs of Intervertebral Disc Disease


FOR MOST PET OWNERS — A PET IS FAMILY. THAT’S WHY WHEN ONE COUPLE’S DOG EXPERIENCED A LIFE-CHANGING INJURY — THEY HAD TO THINK FAST. NOW THEY WANT THEIR EXPERIENCE TO SERVE AS A WARNING– FOR OTHER OWNERS. “VERY STOIC THAT WAS BLUE STEEL” THIS GUY RIGHT HERE – “HE’S A STUD” IS TUCK.-A THREE AND A HALF YEAR OLD FRENCH BULL DOG. HE’S SPORTING A BOW TIE FOR HIS TV DEBUT – ONE HE’S HAD SINCE – WELL — “I’M NOT GOING TO LIE – YESTERDAY” AND THESE ARE TUCKS HONEST – AND PROUD – PARENTS – SHANNON AND ERIK ABRAHAMSEN. “WE GOT HIM ABOUT 3.5 YEARS AGO AT A PET STORE SINCE THEN – HE’S BEEN THEIR PRIDE AND JOY – AND HE’S CERTAINLY “STOP IT ARE YOU DONE” KEPT THEM ON THEIR TOES. “FUN PLAYFUL, LOVES TO RUN WITH THE DOGS NEXT DOOR WITH HIS BROTHER” HERE AT THIS PARK – THE GEESE — FISH – AND ESPECIALLY SQUIRRELS – HAVE HIM WANTING TO BREAK FREE – THE PROBLEM – HE CAN’T. “ITS CALLED IVDD – NO WARNING – ALL OF A SUDDEN IT CAN JUST HAPPEN TO YOUR PET.” TUCK’S BACK LEGS STOPPED WORKING – RANDOMLY — ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO – HE’S PARALYZED – AND CAN’T MOVE. SO THESE 2 WANT TO WARN OTHERS – WHEN YOUR PET STARTS ACTING FUNNY – LIKE TUCK DID ONE MORNING – ACT FAST: “THEY SAY YOU HAVE ABOUT 24 HOURS TO GET THE SURGERY IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A CHANCE TO WALK AGAIN.” WHEN THE TWO SAW HIM LIMPING — THEY WENT TO THE VET RIGHT AWAY. BUT THEY LEARNED — MANY PEOPLE – WAIT A DAY OR SO – WHICH COULD BE THE END ALL BE ALL. IN TUCKS CASE – THE VET GAVE TWO OPTIONS AFTER FINDING 3 RUPTURED DISCS – PUTTING HIM TO SLEEP: “I BELIEVE I STOPPED HER IN THE MIDDLE OF TALKING AND SAID THAT’S NOT AN OPTION.” 0R BECAUSE IT WAS CAUGHT SOON ENOUGH — RUSHING TUCK TO K-STATE FOR EMERGENCY SURGERY – THEY CHOSE THE LATTER. “WE DON’T HAVE KIDS HES OUR BABY AND THEY’RE CUTTING HIM OPEN DOING STUFF TO HIS SPINE – THAT’S SERIOUS – EVEN FOR AN ANIMAL” THIS OPTION GIVES TUCK A 50/50 CHANCE AT WALKING AGAIN. SO FAR – NO LUCK YET. BUT — HAD THEY WAITED TO TAKE HIM TO THE VET – THE CHANCE OF RECOVERY WOULD BE ZERO. IF TUCK’S LEGS DON’T COME BACK – THESE TWO ARE READY TO TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE. “THEY HAVE THOSE PUPPY CHARIOTS HE CAN RUN AROUND IN.” KNOWING HE CAN STILL HAVE A GREAT QUALITY OF LIFE – OH YEAH YEAH FOR SURE DOING ALL THE THINGS HE LOVES IN PAPILLION JOE CHIODO WOWT 6 NEWS. IT COST ABOUT 5 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO KEEP TUCK ALIVE AND PERFORM THE SURGERY. IF YOU WANT TO HELP SUPPORT THEM — THERE’S A LINK TO THEIR GO-FUND-ME PAGE ON OUR WEBSITE.
