Dachshunds and IVDD

While you are browsing around the website to buy things to make your sausages look snuggly, snazzy and stylish can I remind you about the elephant in the room that is IVDD.

When I first bought Reggie, I had no idea about it and thought that you just had to be careful with their backs due to the length of the spine and the short legs.

Since joining many Dachshund Facebook Groups, I now realise that there are sadly 1-4 dachshunds going down with this dreadful disease.

Insurance is an absolute must as the average cost of surgery and recovery is around £7k

I strongly advise you to research as much as you can and have taken the liberty of providing some useful links.
