It's a Miracle!

Forestville, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This is Rocco, our six year old dachshund. In January he went down with complete paralysis of his back legs and became totally incontinent. He was diagnosed with intervertebral disc disease in his back (IVDD). A disc had ruptured and left him paralyzed. Through the use of acupuncture and laser light therapy, he is back! It was suggested he be "put down" but we tried alternative medicine instead and it worked! Morale of the story: Always get a second opinion and never give up hope!

Thank you Kathy! We need to be careful with him and need to keep him from jumping on and off furniture and from going up and down stairs to prevent any other discs from "blowing out." Other than that he is very happy and healthy!
