Proudly supporting Australian owners
of dachshunds affected by IVDD

IVDD Assist
(an initiative of Dachshund IVDD Support Australia)



We are delighted to announce the recipient of “One Stroller A Month” for January 2019 is Lucia from Hervey Bay QLD.

Lucia recently had surgery at North Coast Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre on the Sunshine Coast QLD following an urgent referral from her vet.

The Team at DISA noticed her fur-mum asking about a stroller on the support group late last week and we sent her a sneaky message. We consequently found out that she had also had 2 back operations for human IVDD and was concerned about the effects of caring for her during the recovery phase.

So of course, the first recipient of a lovely red Pet Gear Stroller was a no brainer! Over the weekend plans were set in motion and a stroller and a few goodies were left at the specialist centre for when Lucia’s fur-mum brought her home yesterday.

On behalf of DISA (IVDD Assist Initiative), sponsors and supporters we trust this gift helps make what it often a difficult time a little easier.

Much love from us all at DISA, and as always “We’ve got your back”.


NB: Recipients of this initiative are chosen monthly from members of DISA’s closed Facebook Support Group which is available to owners of IVDD hounds in Australia.
