Hello and welcome to Meeko.
This beautiful Hungarian visla was a delight to meet. Meeko is young and was doing great. But then he started to show behavioural changes that were very unexpected and out of character.
Mum decided to to make sure pain was not the problem so she began seeking help to ensure there was nothing wrong physically. She had already seen a vet and had x-rays, had a thermal imaging camera assessment and seen an osteopath. She wanted to make sure with physiotherapy too.
On assessment we found a few things that were less than ideal. Though nothing severly painful. There were some conformation issues that could be a result of a dysplasia.
We felt it was worth a final investigation by a referal vet to double check a few points found. In the mean time. We also gave some excercises to work the core muscles and we addressed the walk regime to relieve some of the stress on the joints.
We look forward to the referal report and then moving forward. Meeko is a sensitive soul and so sweet and we want to see him happy all the time.
Keep up the good work mum. You are working so hard to give the best care to Meeko. Well done!
Hello and welcome to Skipper. He is such a sweetheart.
This beautiful Springer is a well loved boy. His mum noticed him "clicking". We have all heard clicking in ourselves and others, but for skipper it seemed to get worse and there seemed to be some consistencies. So mum wanted to be sure there was nothing wrong. So she took him to the vet who did some x-rays and investigation. They found nothing wrong. So they suggested physiotherapy.
So mum has now brought Skipper to us. He was a very good boy, though a little nervous. This was fine as we put him at ease. We did hear the "click" a few times. We also found some muscle imbalance and his abdominal muscles we not as strong as his limb muscles in comparison. We were unable to identify the source of the click at this time. But its clearly not painful. The muscle imbalance in the limb was likely due to a minor injury and a lump removal done a few months previously. This does show the importance of physio in all minor injuries and minor surgeries, as this dog has healed very well, but was clearly not fully trusting that limb for quite some time.
We are addressing all of this. But the main aim is to work on the core muscles to get some more strength and support in the back. Mum will also do a "click" diary to see if there is anymore clues in the patterns of the clicks.
Keep up the good work mum and Skipper. You're both doing great. Enjoy the excercises. They are fun!
