I have a 10 1/2 year old female dobie. She had sustained some form of spinal injury from FCE. Had been in the hospital for 8 days and is now home. Does require back leg support to walk and to urinate outside. Do you do therapy and work with dogs that had spinal injuries? Chloe is progressing, but due to the weather, it's difficult to give her the therapy she is reqiring. Do you do full day therapy and day care at your facility?

I just adopted a dog from a shelter who was brought in with at severely broken leg. No one knows how long the little 13 month old beagle's leg had been broken when he was found. A local non-profit animal group paid for his leg surgery. They put a pin in his leg and a cast on it for several weeks. When the doctor decided the best option was amputation they planned the surgery. However, when the Dr. began the surgery, he noticed the bone was beginning to heal. Now, two weeks later, he has finally come to live with me. He has begun to put the leg down and walk on it just a little. He can move it and playing with my other beagle appears to not be painful for him. What exercises can I do with his leg to help it heal to its maximum potential? Any other suggestions on treatment?

Thanks, Kara
