Last year, my 4 year old Lab, had two major TPLO operations to correct
cruciate ligament problems in both her knees. Following each surgical
procedure, I was recommended to take Bertha for hydrotherapy as part
of her post operative care and recovery programme. An underwater treadmill
but where would I find one, how would Bertha react, what was I to
expect and a load of other questions came to mind??
Hence our visit to Pet Paraphernalia,
run by a family with a genuine love for dogs, technical knowledge of
Bertha’s needs and lots of answers that helped me!
I can’t rate
them highly enough.
After each session, Bertha made significantly
noticeable progress – from hesitation in using her leg to consistent
weight bearing. She’s now completely recovered and back to normal,
but I doubt this would have been the case without
our weekly visits to Treading Water.
