Q. MY FRIEND'S DAUSHEND WAS PICKED UP BY HER MOTHER BY THE BACK LEG'S AND I THINK IT STRAINED THE DOG'S REAR QUARTER'S, IS THERE A OVER THE COUNTER PAIN,
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. As Dachshunds are particulary prone to spinal chord and disc problems, it is advisable to have the dog seen by a veterinarian ASAP. Time is of the essence in treating disc problems, ie. Success in relieving the pain and preventing further or permanent damage depends of fast action. There are no over-the counter medications suitable for this.
