Asking for help is never easy, but there are a handful of circumstances in life where we need to swallow our pride and realize that we can't handle it all on our own. My wife (Uriah) and I (Patrick) are in the middle of one of these circumstances.
Once we noticed our miniature dachshund Remy having problems with his back legs, we took him to the vet immediately. He was diagnosed with Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD), but was still in the earliest stages. The next morning, he had no control over his back legs or tail, so we rushed him in again, this time for surgery. The doctor was able to do everything possible during the surgery, but recovery from this type of disease can take a long time, and we still aren't sure whether there was any permanent damage or not.
Remy is the type of dog that you just can't help but fall in love with, and he returns every bit of that love ten times over. For everything he has given and done for the two of us, we have to give him every chance to recover. Any help that you can give to our small family of 3 will go towards the cost of Remy's surgery, medications, and rehab.
