Seymour Update

Seymour, upper left, is doing OK - he's pigging out, wants to push his way out of his crate, is out of ICU and catheter removed so they are expressing his bladder.  No return of sensation nor motor but still early. Was told to wait at least 3-5 months before getting a wheelchair for him so he can maximally work on recovery before "giving up" as to that recovery. Thanks for all the support.


  1. I missed the original Seymour post, I'm sorry!

    Have you read the Joyful Paws dog blog at all? The author, Barbara Techel, recently adopted an IVDD Dachschund, as her "original" IVDD dog, Frankie, had passed away a few months previous. She might have info that's helpful to you! (not including the link so that Google doesn't mistake me for spam, but the address is in fact joyfulpaws DOT com)

  2. Oh no! I have been out of the loop for so long. I am sorry to hear that something is wrong with Seymour. I assume it was a back injury but I will go back and read your previous posts about it. You two hang in there.
