Slipped or Ruptured Disc
One of the commonest injuries to the spine is injury to one of the spinal discs, which are paddings between the vertebrae. Sometimes when there is strenuous movement or an injury to the back, the disc slips out of place or is completely ruptured (slipped disc; ruptured disc). The condition is seen most commonly in- dachshunds due to the elongated body and Pekingese, poodles, and cockers are also susceptible.
In any painful condition of the body where the animal refuses to move in his usual fashion and will not jump and romp, an injury to the spine should be considered. There is incoordination in the rear legs, and gradually the animal goes down on his rear legs and begins dragging. There is severe pain when the back is touched.
