We all want our three-legged cats and dogs to have a pain free Tripawd life. In this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio, you’ll learn how one special pup is enjoying hers.
Everyone who has been around a three-legged pet knows that Tripawd dogs and cats can get around just fine on three legs. But over time, every amputee dog and cat will pay a painful price for moving their body in a way it wasn’t designed to do. Sometimes we notice it happening suddenly, with an acute injury that requires a remaining leg surgery. Other times a Tripawd’s pain sets in as chronic osteoarthritis, which happens to three-leggers at an earlier age than their four-legged friends. But fear not, there’s plenty to help slow it down.
We can do LOTS to help our pets enjoy a pain free Tripawd life!
In this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio, you’ll learn how Meg (aka the Meg-a-Star) is enjoying an excellent, pain-free time on three legs. Listen here or watch our video chat. below.
Thanks to her awesome physiotherapist Phillipa Mitchell and Meg’s mum’s diligent efforts to leave no stone unturned when it comes to helping Meg, this superstar is rockin’ a pain-free Tripawd life that we hope all dogs get to enjoy.
So kick back and learn how this trio keeps Meg fit, strong, and happy. It’s not hard, and it doesn’t have to be expensive either as Clare discusses in Meg’s latest canine arthritis treatment, monoclonal antibody therapy.

My flat-coat retriever “Wishbone” is a recent front-leg amputee and his background was so similar to Meg’s – he, too had severe elbow problems since a puppy (he is now 6 yrs old), so hearing Meg’s story was truly helpful – especially hearing about Clare being torn about the need to make Meg stronger soon after amputation but also concerned about her pain. That is EXACTLY where I am now. He has been reluctant to walk outside and I believe he is in pain owing to arthritis in his remaining front leg. He has started therapy (water treadmill and laser) this past week, and he received his first platelet-rich-plasma injection last week, but I will ask about the ketamine injection as well. Thank you for sharing Meg’s story – it gives me guidance, hope, and helps me realize that I need to give things time.
This was very interesting. Thank you Clare and Phillipa for sharing the story about Meg.
Glad you enjoyed it Michelle! The arthritis treatments are for four-legged dogs too 😉
