Slipped Disc in Neck

I'm new on this board but am curious if any of you have had slipped disc problems with you pups.

How was it handled? Did you need surgery? Did you pup heal?
I just am recovering after 5 weeks with my boy, he's doing better, no surgery needed, but he'll never heal. We had to change our whole lifestyle.

Thanks in advance!

Many years ago, my dobie, Angel, was about 2 and suffered a slipped disk from tug of war with the dalmatian. She did not require surgery, just a course of anti inflamatorys and cortico-steroids. It took about 6 months for recovery but she never played again. When the other dogs played, she sat on the deck and barked at them, but never joined in, as if she knew it could hurt her again. She lived to 12 and never had another problem in that area, but like you mentioned it was a new lifestyle. Raised bowls, no tug ever! no jumping off high places (truck). Best of luck to you
