THESE DOG DAYS
A resource for disabled dogs and their owners
Today we meet Billie and talk about life with George the Weimaraner. George suffered from a fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE) in October 2016 and became paralyzed in all four legs. Billie tells us about their daily routine and how they manage a large, paralyzed dog.
Could you tell us about your daily routine caring for a paralyzed dog?
Today we meet Tomoko from Osaka, Japan and her dog Rodem, the Minature Schnauzer. Rodem is paralyzed in her hind legs as a result of a fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE). FCE is a condition in which a piece of fibrous cartilage obstructs the blood supply to the spinal cord, typically occurring during physical activity causing neurons in the spinal cord to die off.
Could you describe your life with Rodem?
