Fully recovered Rottweiler following spinal surgery at Mass VetOn June 16th of 2012 our Bettsy was injured. She had bulging discs in C2/C3. She was paralyzed from the neck to the waist. She was 9 years old. We met Dr. Gena Silver at Woburn’s Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital. We were devastated. We thought she was going to have to be put down.

Dr. Silver performed microsurgery the next day. Bettsy was in ICU for a week. She was put through rigorous PT. 2 and 1/2 years later she is better than new!!! Thank you Dr. Silver, and all your staff at Mass Vet!!!!!
