IVDD Resources & Support

IVDD Paralysis is not a death sentence! 

Over the years we have worked with many dogs that have been paralyzed.  We are proud to say that we have helped many of them walk again through conservative methods.  For those that we cannot get walking, we have  adopted them with carts.  We highly recommend to all pet parents faced with a paralyzed dog to seek the bounty of information on IVDD at  We use these methods of conservative care as described by Dodgers List.


We share with you vets that will support conservative care for your dog
