Zissou is a 5 year old mini dachshund who was surrendered to us when he went down with grade 5 IVDD. He is currently in foster and looking for his forever home.

Luckily Zissou likes nothing more than burying down in his blankets and sleeping which has meant his crate rest has been fairly easy going. Zissou was originally an only dog however he now has Six foster brothers and sisters and has adapted to a busy house exceptionally well.  His character is now really starting to show, he loves cuddles and food. He makes sure he’s not forgotten when the treats are given out by reminding us loudly that he’s there!  Being used to sleeping in his crate, Zissou has now found the luxury of the bed and much prefers it. 

Zissou is still not weight bearing in his hind legs and has no or minimal DPS and is still incontinent,  but it is still early days for him and with the ongoing hydrotherapy, physiotherapy and possibly acupuncture he will receive he will be given the best possible chance of walking in the future. 

Zissou also suffers from a skin complaints caused by excessive yeast production that affects his ears and skin to his front end which will need ongoing investigations to enable us to put a management plan in place.
