I am hoping someone here can help me. I just found out today that my 5 year old Doberman may have Wobbler’s Syndrome. I have been trying to find out information on the internet about the surgery and have found some, which from what I’ve read may be risky.
I love my doberman very much and am trying to find a site or if anyone has information on how much this kind of surgery may cost and the success rate. I had her x-rays done today, which shows nothing. The vet did say that it usualy don’t and to be certain she will have to be injected with a dye into her spine, which is also dangerous from what I’ve read.
I would like to know if anyone may have had experience with this and know have a ballpark figure of what it could cost and if it’s worth putting the dog through that. I also read that it is months of recovery and they have to be stabilized. I am very upset about this and am willing to spend as much as I can. I just don’t want to put her through a lot of pain with the tests, surgery, and recovery if the success rate is low.
I would appreciate any information.
Thank you so much
