OH MY GOSH - those are so cute! Isabella thanks you!!!! She is doing very well...thank you guys for all your good thoughts!!!! She has a pain patch on until Friday, takes another pain med, and some steroids. She was all over me when I picked her up - - - the vet was quite surprised as she had not moved all day. He was warning me that she might be very lethargic, still have trouble walking, and if she seemed like she was in severe pain bring her right back. He handed her to me and she jumped up on my face and wouldn't quit licking - got me a few times I think in the back of my throat and up my nose

I am being very good though - I set up her kennel again, placed it in the living room, where she will stay while I am gone. She IS going to recover from this.

Again, thanks everyone!!!!!

oh, poor kitchenelf, and poor isabella!

dachs are just prone to back blow-outs. loooooong skinny back + short little legs + gravity = issues. your vet was right to wait a while (i'm a vet too), some of them DO resolve with in-hospital cage rest & meds. but if they don't, or if you can see the disc blown all the way out on an x-ray, well, time for surgery. just the way that particular flavor of little furkids is made.

my girl Sheba (sheltie, not dachsund, who i sadly lost just 2 weeks ago) blew out a disc over the thanksgiving holiday about 5 years ago, and it was WAY scary. they never do it from something obvious, like jumping from a second story window, nope. hers was just a little foot raised on the couch to get my attention, then a scream of pain. much like when people "slip a disc," plenty of time it happens when they're doing something as easy as reaching for the remote. it's just an accumulation of little injuries over the years, that all of a sudden picks a random moment to not be ok anymore.
