Bella is one of those lucky dogs who get to live their whole life in a loving family. Eleven years ago, Bella’s owner got her from a responsible breeder. Together in their new home, their days passed in peace and joy.
Unfortunately, in 2018, Bella started to have problems with the movement of her hind legs. After a trip to the vet, the diagnosis was clear – deformity of the vertebral spine with spinal cord compression. A condition that is unfortunately common with dogs of her breed.
Bella is an irreplaceable member of the family, so when the vet recommended surgery, her humans didn’t think twice. The surgery was a success and at first, it seemed that she would be fine again. She was coming to rehabilitation regularly and the first improvements appeared. For unknown reasons, however, while exercising with the dog physiotherapist and at home, her recovery had had many ups and even more downs. At the beginning of 2019, despite all the care, Bella began to pull her paws behind her.
