IVDD - Intervertebral Disc Disease

Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) is by far the most common health problem in UK Dachshunds: around 1 in 4 may be affected at some stage in their lives. Whilst many recover well in time, there is significant risk of permanent damage so severe it is life changing or threatening.  On our dedicated IVDD website, you can find out more about the causes, symptoms, treatments, expense, how to reduce the risks, plus details of our IVDD screening initiative. 

View our IVDD presentations and videos from veterinary and breed experts, here.
