Can this webinar still be viewed?
Only to paid subscribers at this point. But stay tuned, Dr. Waterhouse has big news for the Tripawds community soon!
I have 2 tripawd dogs, both rear leg amputees. One is 2 years, Shepherd mix small female 45 lb, the other lab mix 7 years 75lb.
My lab mix is experiencing difficulty in walking, going up stairs, and getting up after sitting. I have tried rimadyl, and the “g” drug, neither seem to get much relief and make his mood strange. Have also tried glucosemine and recently CBC I his food.
Seems like soreness in his back and groin, when I massage him
Where to go from here. Laser?, massage? When I exercise him, he cannot get up but drags his rear….so I don’t
He loves his life, too young to die, and I have another dog. Owing up and want her to have a long life
As we face winter and colder weather it just gets much harder for him to move go upstairs and be active.
Any suggestions you might have please let me know I live in Parker Colorado
the other 7 years
Please consult with a certified canine rehab therapist for proper evaluation, treatment recommendations and the best exercise program designed specifically for your pup. (Walks do not build strength, only stamina.) Visit a CCRT or CCRP and the Tripawds Foundation can even pay for your first visit!
