Hello and welcome to Sandy. She is so sweet and actually a very good healer! She had a total hip replacement not that long ago and recovered really well. But she is also accident prone. She managed to severly sprain her hock on the other hind limb. She saw the referral specialist, who put the limb in a brace and allowed it to be supported through the healing phase. The brace was gradually reduced in strength so that more support was done by the dog and it could strengthen. This is how braces should be done. As a result the recovery was brilliant. But she has now come for physio to strengthen her limb and get her back to normal life.
Dad has been great at following the program set and she is recovering well. This all takes time and involves gradually building the load and stress put through the limb so thay the strength is rebuilt and no more damage is done.
She will soon be back to normal. Keep up the good work dad and Sandy.
