Please enjoy this wonderful and informative story. For pet parents with a dog suffering from IVDD – this book has some helpful resources for information and support.

He liked that Frankie went to the local Farmer’s Market with her Mom and showed all the interested people how well she was doing, having fun and walking around even with her challenges.
