Yes Dachshunds do have back problems. One out of four dachshunds will have a back issue, sometimes if the case is really bad it can result in the back half of the dog being paralyzed! The way to avoied this happening, is to be gentle with your dachshund, make sure children are gentle as well, hold them carefully so their backs are straight. Also if you have a mini dachshund, it would be wise to have ramps up the stairs, up to furniture and the bed. Back issues can be prevented! You just have to be careful.
