Tune In Here: How to Help Dogs and Cats with Pet Paralysis
Sharon is an animal rights writer and co-founder of Heaven Can Wait Animal Society. When her 10-year old dog Sophie gradually became weaker and then lost all use of her limbs, Sharon was at a loss for what to do. Several specialists, rehab therapists and treatments yielded little to no success to help Sophie walk again; that’s when Sharon’s pack began a new normal way of life and learned how to make the best of Sophie’s disability.
What you’ll learn:
- Causes and treatments for pet paralysis
- The most important lessons to remember when living with a paralyzed pet
- Products and at-home care tips that can make life more manageable.
- How veterinary clinical trials are helping to alleviate and some day eliminate pet paralysis
If you have a pet coping with paralysis, you are welcome to call the show at (646) 716-5450 and ask Sharon your questions.
