Hello and Welcome to Chewy.
This rescue Akita has been through a lot in life. But he is well loved now. His mum is so dedicated to making sure he is ok.
He is a challange as he is one of the very few patients who does not like being touched. So its a very gentle approach.
He rescently had TPLO surgery on his knee and his recovery was mediocre so he needs a bit of help to get his confidence in the limb and build some muscle.
Its ok even if we cant touch the patient as much as we would like. Its easy to see the problem when you watch him move and we can set easy excercises to gently work the limb without needing to pull him around. So this is what we have done. In time we hope he will learn to trust us and we will build our relationship. In the mean time, we are pleased to say that our point was already proven and mum reported Chewy is already making great progress and getting back to his old antics within just a week!
Keep up the good work mum and Chewy!
