  1. Challenging exercises indeed! Wyatt is such good boy to deal with all this! 🙂 So glad he gets treats for all his hard work! And it really does look like it’s jard work targeting those muscles and building strength.

    Another very, very informative installment with great “how to” videos.

    Thank you for taking the time to share these techniques and supplement I fo too.

    LOVE
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  2. Very interesting. Resistant bands very good workout for humans. I am definitely following this series

  3. Izzy’s knee repair recovery was tougher than her amputation and, even though old age caught up with her just shy of a year after her CCL repair, I’d do it all over again.

    I am a patient of Dr. Nell with my tripawd George. 9 years old large breed dog that lost his back leg to cancer 2 months ago.
    I see the benefits of her treatments and have been going to her for over a year now.
    I can’t say enough about how much this helps George.

  5. Eight years is a long time and it’s because of you that he’s not had more issues before. I am a firm believer in good, continuous exercise and I am also sure that if Manni hadn’t been as fit as he was before his amp we would have had a lot more problems on three. Exercise always pays off but I do believe it’s crucial for a tripawd.
    The added hip displasia makes things a lot more difficult of course but if anyone can stay on top of this it’s you guys!

    • Well thanks Tina! Manni is so fortunate to have such a health-conscious mom like you. Nobody ever expects to go down the amputation road but if it happens, if the dog or cat is already in good shape it makes quality of life so much better. Kudos to you for being there for him always.

  6. No matter whay Wyatt, you are handsome as ever!! And such a good boy putting up with all the prodding!
    I know it must be a little “disappointing” to find that Wyatt as issues in spite of ALL the unbelievable dedication you jave given him to keep him fit and strong!!!

    The “silver lining” is to know that he has, indeed, benefited from the fitness regiment! As you nited, without all those workouts, etc, he would be in HORRIBLE shape!!!

    Curious…did they suggest any Adequan injections….anything like that? I know he’s alrrady taking plenty of “good” supplements….did they comment on anything additional….or make any observations about what he is currently taking??

    Thanks for keeping us informed and for sharing the great links. How I wish we all had A Colorado State University near us!
    Love!
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    PS. Wuatt did get a scoopnof ice cream for being such a good boy, right?? Never mind….I know the answer! 🙂

    • Hey Sally, thanks for the feedback. The vets don’t think he’s ready for any stronger pain medication right now, thankfully. He is on a new Omega 3 that the CSU vets stand behind. I’ll blog about that soon.

      And you are correct about that ice cream! 😉

  7. I’m so sorry Wyatt is starting to feel the effects that years have brought on – Even though you’ve done everything you can to prevent it. I worry about this with my girl Daisy too. Thank you for the information and the resources.

    • Korynn, stay on top of things with Daisy and everything will be fine. Use your worry to take action and you’ll notice a difference in her quality of life. Thanks for reading!

  8. Wow, I didn’t realize he was slowing down the way he was. I am glad you are sharing this information with us. Good information for even my 4 legged dogs 🙂

  9. Such an informative blog! It’s quite interesting readint the specifics of why it “works”, why Dr Ettinger uses this pr thst drug, etc. Glad the doxy was brought up too.
    THANK YOU for always bringing such vital information to the forefront.
    Gratefully,
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  10. So beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
