If you own a dachshund or other chondrodystrophic breed, you should be aware of the symptoms of Intervertebral disk disease (IVDD).

The graphic below provides very basic info to raise awareness, but you should consult your vet and DodgersList.com, the foremost site for IVDD and related information, for more information.
