Dear Dr. Stallings, you performed an emergency spinal surgery on our Boston Terrier Dickens in February. It was a tough one, because once you opened him up you found that material from a disc had leaked and calcified on the spinal cord. You cautioned us not to expect to much in terms of his ability to walk. You did a better job than you knew, because today he’s getting around reasonably well. We appreciate your hard work in surgery.
