I love the way you are so 'on the case' and getting everything sorted. Luna is so, so lucky to have a Mum like you. And I'm pleased you are seeing a rehab vet; I think that could be tremendously helpful in terms of forming a plan going forward and they will certainly be able to advise re the brace, and whether one is warranted for Luna.

I would never call you crazy (pot, kettle, black etc.) and besides, Meg certainly responded to her first laser and acupuncture treatment. I also find it really chills her out, which is an additional bonus... (nine times out of ten, that is. One time out of ten it sends her totally maniclaughing)

Really looking forward to hearing how you and Luna get on.

Luna went to her evaluation yesterday at the certified rehabilitation place ! All I can say is Wow! I wish I had done this sooner , we were there over an hour and they were so informative . I received so much information that I wasn't even aware of regarding a tripawd . Not only was this extremely beneficial for Luna , it was I feel almost more beneficial to me at this time . I know have a better understanding of so many things when it comes to Luna's care. I'm so glad that this forum recommends and makes the suggestion to go get an evaluation. I don't think Luna's core muscles or back area have ever worked that much :). I'm am so excited for what's to come and continue learning to help Luna and others. 

Luna and I cannot say thank you enough to this wonderful community !!!
