My Dog Had a Spinal Stroke. What Should I Do?

My Dog Had a Spinal Stroke. What Should I Do?

If you think your dog has had a spinal stroke, you must see your vet immediately. Your dog might show signs of being unable to walk or move, however it is paramount to note that these symptoms could also be for other medical conditions which are not spinal strokes.

After your dog has been diagnosed with a spinal stroke, you will have a few options ahead of you. Some of the dogs we have helped have continued to get better over the next few months, so don’t give up!

Many owners take their dog to hydrotherapy or physiotherapy, to make sure they are as strong as possible and slow down muscle wastage.

You might want to also think about a set of wheels, as many owners choose to get a dog wheelchair.
