Hello and welcome to Maisy.
She is a much loved springador and has come from a line of loved dogs as this is the daughter of a client now bringing her own dog in. That makes you realise how many years you have been in the industry!
Maisy had some mild issues when she was only a year old and so had some investigation amd diagnosed with mild hip dysplasia. She managed to resolve those signs easily and has not shown further issues for over a year.
But then she had an incident where she came back from her day out incredibly sore and couldnt get herself in the door over the step. She was clearly in pain. But some rest seemed to resolve it very quickly and when she saw the vet it had almost resolved. She came for physio anyway as mum wanted to make sure there was nothing serious going on.
We did a full assessment and found her mobility to be very good in general, but there were some tweeks that could improve her body. The history suggested she may have hurt her back or neck. There was some range of movement issues in the neck, and the abdominal muscles were not as strong as we'd like.
So we set her up with a home regime of doggy sit ups and neck muscle strengthening. Mum already had an excellent walk regime and she was well muscled everywhere else.
Hopefully the insident wont happen again, but of it does, mum knows where we are. Keep up the good work mum and Maisy.
