Today Marta Nobrega came to my house to do some rehab exercises with Farley; she used to be my regular vet but had to leave the practice due to some health problems. She now has a solo practice which includes rehab

She started with Farley standing and moving his pelvic area back and forth over his leg and then forwards and backwards. When he tired, he sat down

Next were stretching exercises for the back leg muscles

 
I'll do these exercises a few times a day
She also approved of swimming at a facility with a pool for dogs (and a person who takes the dog in the pool); Farley is a national level field dog and he loves to swim. We'll also do some search games in the house (he is obviously bored)

OMD - he’s looking great. Way to go, Farley! The pool makes total sense given his field work.

I love in the second video how he gets playful with her as if he’s trying to join in on this new and interesting game! …and then by the last video the stretches seem to have put him into total relaxation. sp_hearticon2

WOW! I sp_hearticon2 Marta! Farley is so cooperative and adorable. Squirmy but playful, such a good dawg.

These are fabulous clips of what a good rehab session looks like. It's helpful to record them so you remember how to do your homework. Thank you for sharing.

He looks so good! I can't wait to see what kind of search games you come up with. If you remember, do record those too, we'd love to see them.

Marta (the rehab vet) suggested searches to help with Farley's boredom and to get him up and moving around

Here is today's search

Absolutely mesmerized by how handsome Farley is and how effortlessly he is moving as anew Tripawd.  This was so much fun to watch as he figured out where his special treat was hidden.  Clearly Farley was having fun too.

thanks for sharing and we look forward to more

Today Farley had his second rehab appointment; Marta gave him a nice massage working on trigger points and some nice stretches.

She also cleaned his ears and put in a new medicine which will keep him from having problems for a a month

His only new exercise was "bouncing" on his hind leg

Farley loved the treats she gave him

YAY! Marta sounds like a really great therapist. Just the description of all she does for him makes ME want her for my therapist!

Bouncing on his hind leg eh? Like weight shifting?

Good boy, Farley! You worked hard!
