Last week I saw a male Dachshund who had had spinal surgery 4 weeks earlier. He hadn’t regained any function since surgery. He’s paralyzed and unable to urinate on his own. I treated him with acupuncture and told him to come back in a week.
Today was his next appointment. We asked the owner if he was any better. She sort of hemmed and hawed and then said, “There is one thing…”
This nice unneutered male dog has become “interested” in the world again. I fixed erectile dysfunction! I told the owner that we would probably be much more excited about that if we were male. I called my male boss to tell him and he was much impressed. LOL
He does have stronger reflexes in the back legs too so we might be able to get a little function back.
