My dog has a disk rupture, and I need to know how to take care of her.
If your dog has been diagnosed with an intervertebral disc rupture, then she will be paralyzed. Depending on the severity of the signs, she may regain her ability to walk again if surgery is done to decompress the spinal cord. This is done by removing the ruptured disc material.
If it is only back pain and and spinal cord inflammation, your vet would prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs such as prednisolone and analgesic drugs.
Whatever the case may be, you need to also follow these guidelines:
Your dog should hav absolute restricted confinement (cage rest) for two to four weeks.
Minimize spinal manipulation and support spine when handling your dog.
Ensure your dog has the ability to urinate (otherwise you need to assist her by squeezing her bladder) and defecate.
Keep your dog clean on padded bedding placed on elevated cage racks and turned frequently to prevent bed sores.
Physical therapy with passive manipulation of rear limbs may help your dog.
Carts are useful for many patients.
If your dog is overweight, put her on a diet.
I hope this helps you and your dog.
