I am so sorry to hear about your precious baby Scooter.
I thankfully have not had to deal with this issue, but many who have joined the Dodgerslist web site for support and great information.
Their web site is: www.dodgerslist.com
Good luck and prayers go out that your Scooter will
I give my Baxter a spine and disc supplement called Vetri Disc from Vetri Science that I buy on line.
It is a back support formula made especially for dogs.
You might want to check it out for your Scooter.
A canine orthopedic specialst told me it was a good idea to help prevent back issues, especially in dogs like Dachshunds.
I am with you - giving up on your baby so soon is not an option.
They can recover from this and deserve our efforts to heal them if it is at all possible.
They give us so much, it is the least we can do.
Bette and Baxter
