Here's what visitors to this site have said to us...
An owner who was worried her dog might have a back problem, but her vet was saying "it's just arthritis". She read our information and revisited the vet:
“I am on my way home with her now - he will phone me later with details of where and when I can get a referral to a specialist. I am not looking at my wee girl so fearfully now. Home and into her crate until we know where we stand re her back. I actually feel like I know what I am doing, and that what I am doing is right. Thanks again for your wonderful support and the link to that fantastic website. Xxx”
A veterinary neurologist reviewed the site and said:
"I love the IVDD website, very informative and useful and really nicely designed."
An owner who was told by her vet that her Dachshund had a swelling in his back asked for advice on our Facebook Group and decided to take him for a second opinion. The dog needed surgery and has made a good recovery.
"This page/site has been a lifeline for me the last 10 days. If not for this group I might have listened to the ill-advised first vet that I saw!!! Thank goodness I found you guys and sought out a second opinion. You helped me save my little man, thank you so so much. xxx"
A vet in general practice emailed us and said:
"There is some great advice on your site and it has certainly helped some of my patients. Some great work you're doing just now."
