Take care of your wiener.

Like many wieners I have to be very careful with my loooong back. You know that I use ramps instead of stairs and I've had to take some pills to help with pain. My neck started hurting this weekend so this time my human wanted to figure out exactly what was bothering me.

I went to see a special wiener doctor at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists. I got a needle that put me to sleep so they could take some high tech pictures of me from nose to tail. The doctor figured out what she needed to do and then I got another needle and went back to sleep.

While I was out the doctor made a long incision down my back and fixed some discs. She stapled everything up with 23 staples. When I woke up I was very wobbly and I couldn't really feel much of anything. I stayed with the doctor and all of the awesome wiener nurses for 2 more nights. They treated me really good. I think they might love wieners a lot.

I was really happy when I saw my human and the big guy at the hospital. I'm back home now and feeling pretty good though I can't stand up for very long and I am on strict cage rest for a long time.
(*apparently I am feeling pretty good due to the little blue sticker you see on my back. It's got drugs on it)
