The saddest thing happened to my precious Bonni this past weekend. I woke up Fri morning to find she has no use of her 2 hind legs. Then rushing to the vet to find out she had a spinal cord injury requiring emergency surgery to prevent irreversible damage. The diagnosis is Intervertebral Disc Disease. Genetic they say. She was rushed in for emergency surgery and the findings were severe. Her spinal cord were pretty bruised up in multiple areas. She is post-op day day 3 now and is doing good. However, still no motor function of her legs and she still cannot urinate on her own- requiring a urine collection bag. =(
The next step is to send her to a physical therapist.
All this happened in South Florida (Miami) so Bonni is still down there and I am in Melbourne now. I feel so helpless. I am worried sick and is hoping she will pull through this.
Does anyone out there have experience in this?? I could use some advice from Corgi owners?
Will she walk again? Will she have back pain for life?
Thanks so much in advance.
