Hello and welcome to Katie. Such a beautiful labrador.
She is young and silly and managed to rupture her cruciate ligament in her knee.
Mum was well experianced with this and got her straight to the referral specialist. He did his procedure to fix it. She has turned out to be one of the best recoveries we have ever seen!
She is using the limb so well. Our biggest challange is keeping her calm whilst the bone has time to recover fully.
We have set her muscle building program up and kept it gentle but progressive.
Keep up the good work mum and Katie.
Hello and welcome to Jemima.
Such a cute old lady. Very calm and very much enjoyed her treatment.
She is well loved and cared for. She has had a few illnesses in her life. She has had pancreatitis and both of her cruciates have ruptured. This was 3 years ago now and her recovery was very good following TTA procedures. But she is now seeing us for her arthritis. In the last week her dad has seen her quickly deteriorate. The vets have done a full check but not found anything.
So she was referred for physio for her arthritis. Actually we were suprised to see how good her joints were! Her lameness suggested we were going to see big problems. But although she did have significant muscle wastage, she was actually showing good range of movement.
So we did a full body massage and her stiffness was greatly relieved. It actually left us wondering if she has picked up a nasty achy muscle virus.
We have given dad a home regime and we will see her again next week to see how she has gone. She deffinatly appreciated her massage!
Keep up the good work dad and Jemima!
