Ricco the Dachshund
Ricco is a 6 year old Dachshund with a week long history of progressive weakness in the hindlimbs. On his initial exam, he was completely paralyzed in the pelvic limbs but was able to feel his toes. MRI revealed a large intervertebral disc herniation causing severe compression of his spinal cord. A surgery called a "hemilaminectomy" was performed to remove the herniated portion of the disc that was compressing the spinal cord. The video shows Ricco paralyzed on his initial exam prior to surgery, his ability to move his left pelvic limb 2 days after surgery and him walking at his 2 week and 5 week rechecks. Ricco was a great patient and made an excellent recovery!
