Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

This is not uncommon in this breed and there is a very good prognosis with the medications and if you are very careful to not allow sweet Alfie to jump up or down or even climb steps to allow this disc to stabilize. In very bad situations, the disc can be removed but since Alfie is so young, this disc will stabilize so he feels better and will go back to his old happy self.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
