Many pet lovers take care of their pets as though they were their very own children. Sometimes its surprising how much expenses these people are willing to pay for their pets as these pets provide them with a source of joy or companionship no other human relationship can provide.
As the saying goes, dogs are man’s best friend. The quality of life of these pets are thus also important to their owners. Most pet lovers bring their dogs everywhere they go, and moral ethics dictate that when you bring a dog into your home, the owners take total responsibility for the dog, providing them with good food, clean water, shelter and a warm place to sleep, the ability to go outside, and the best medical care you can reasonably afford.
You may be surprised also to find out that even your dogs may now purchase their very own pet wheelchairs. Like humans, dogs also suffer from occasional illness and injury. Some breeds of dogs are specially susceptible to certain kinds of injuries.
Long-backed dogs such as Dachshunds, Bassett Hounds, and Cocker Spaniels are genetically prone to degenerative disk disease – “DDD” some, the “Dreaded Dachshund Disease” to others since
Dachshunds are very likely to develop this condition unless strict precautions by the owner are taken such as not allowing the Doxie to jump off furniture. As the term degenerative suggests, DDD occurs with the slow degeneration of one or more disks in a dog’s back.
