Hello and welcome to jemima. She is a little beauty and also feisty! She managed to injure her fore leg. She was found in the garden unable to use one leg. She was rushed to the vets who sent her straight for referral.
The injury was directly effecting her brachial plexus which feeds into several vital nerves. Radial nerve being one of them. This damage had rendered her paraylsed in the limb from the elbow down. This is sadly not uncommen. The referal center refered her to physio.
So we immediatly set her and mum up with a home regime. Its vital that we work on the limb regularly throughout the day, but we also have to give her rest and recovery time too. This is all about the timing.
So we have set her up with a program of massage PEMF therapy, stretching and some exercises to encourage limb use and vibration through the limb.
We are pleased to say there has already been some progress, but this is a long journey as nerve recovery can be notoriously slow. But whilst there is progress, we can be optomisitic.
Good luck Jemima. Keep up the good work mum. You're all doing great!
