In 2002, our family dog, Daisy, had back surgery. She had a herniated disk (if I remember correctly). We chose to get the surgery for her and have a small Christmas that year. She couldn't go up or down the steps for 6 weeks (if I remember correctly). My parents house had 1 step from the yard to the porch and 1 from the porch into the house. My dad built a ramp for her because she couldn't do steps. My family used our computers less because they were in the basement and we couldn't hang out with her down there.
Don't you just feel bad for her looking at how they had to shave her back and looking at all those stitches.
Have you ever gotten surgery for any of your pets?
