Are you an RSPCA NSW member? All members receive three copies of animals magazine. Filled with pet care advice, latest RSPCA NSW news and events, and celebrities - our next issue (out early March) features an article on Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel) and his six-year-old mini Schnauzer, Rufus.
Back in January2008, Rufus suffered a slipped disc (invertible disc extrusion) and complete paralysis of the back legs. After surgery and a month in veterinary care, Rufus returned home in a new mode of transportation, a cart.
“When it first happened I thought, ‘Are we being selfish?’ But we knew it was the right thing to do – Rufus is such a happy dog.” said Lizotte.
