Hey everypawdy, while Tripawds is here in Los Angeles, we thought we'd take advantage of the incredible canine health care options available. So, in addition to interviewing one of the leading veterinary oncologists on the planet next week, we are also meeting with Leslie Gallagher McMahon, the founder of Two Hands, Four Paws, a canine massage and rehabilitation practice.

Leslie Two Hands Four Paws Canine Massage

Founded in 2003, Two Hands Four Paws is the oldest wellness center for canines in the Los Angeles area. We provide massage and swim therapies along with canine physical rehabilitation.

 We’ve improved the lives of hundreds of clients (and their guardians), speeding recovery from injury or surgery, helping with weight loss, and assisting canine athletes to reach peak performance levels.

Once again, we are asking our Tripawd members, what are your burning questions about massage therapy and rehab for Tripawds?

Please post your brief questions below, by Sunday evening. Try to keep them as general as you can so all pawrents here can benefit. Thanks!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Here’s my questions:

What is suggested to keep a tripawd’s dog strengthened with a rear leg amputation?

What is suggested for massage for a tripawd – as obviously they are compensating in their body for it? Like what types of massage for their spine for instance?

How can we keep their bodies ‘even’ now that they are on three legs?

How can we avoid possibly injuring the remaining rear leg ex: ACL?

VERY COOL JERRY!!!! THANKS SO MUCH FOR DOING THIS!!!

Tracy, Maggie’s Momicon_lol

Maggie was amputated for soft tissue sarcoma 10-20-09

Maggie lost her battle with kidney disease on 8-24-13
