Hi Ottosmum. And welcome from the Pacific NW.

If you type "Wobblers" into the Search Community feature at the top of the intro page, you will get dozens of resulting discussions on the topic.

It is a rather common medical issue with Dobermans.

Best to you and Otto

Every dog is different with how they do with wobblers. How was your dog diagnosed? So many vets are very quick to diagnose wobblers in a Doberman when it could be something else. The only real way to diagnose wobblers is with an MRI or mylogram of their neck.

I agree, Fitzmar, the MRI is really the only way for a correct diagnosis.
We had a boy with a crushed vertabrae that mimicked Wobblers. Treatment was different and effective for him.
Altho' it require surgery to repair the disc.
