Paralysis in a young Pekingese

March 29th, 2020

This sweet pup had sudden onset of pain and paralysis in both hind limbs. She could not stand without help and could only be walked with her hindquarters in a sling. The most likely diagnosis given her breed and presentation was intervertebral disk disease. The owner could not afford the recommended surgery and was looking for another treatment option. This little one received cold laser, dry needle acupuncture and electroacupuncture on her first visit. She was sent home with a Chinese herbal formula as well. Second visit was four days later.
