    Exclamation Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)

    Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) is much more common in dogs than cats. This condition occurs when the pads of fibrocartilage which sits between the vertebra of the spine is misplaced/injured. Here's some information on IVDD (including a video) which describes the symptoms and treatments of this disease...http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites...c-disease.aspx

    Wow, never heard of this disease. From the information the only options for treatment seem to be surgical. That is horrible for a dog to through. I wouldn't wish this Inter-vertebral Disc Disease on any animal.
