Good News!

I'm a happy pup today cuz I got good news from my vet! The Orthopedic/Radiologist consultation came back and they felt everything in my x-rays looked OK. They agreed that I do have a soft tissue injury in my right hind leg, so the alternative vet as my Mom calls Dr. Mayer, has put together a 6-week rehab plan for me. They've got a mix of therapeutic exercise, underwater treadmill, ultrasound and resistance pool work planned for me. I'm not sure what to expect, but I'm psyched about the swimming! Thank you to you all for your positive thoughts, your concern meant so much to me! I've got Mom charging up the camera battery, so she can capture every moment of my rehab! This should be interesting!!

'Till next time,
Kirby

We're glad to hear that it isn't your bones. Once you are better, we think you should pretend that you are still sore just so your people have to take you to swimming rehab every day?

Molly and Taffy said...

Oh gosh Kirby

We have been away on holiday and just read all about your xrays over the past week or so. It must have been so worrying for you and your pawrents. We are just so pleased the results are good. Enjoy all your hydrotherapy sessions they sound fun.

Take care.

Hi Kirbster! OMG! OMG! OMG! I am so happiest ever for you! I need to look back at your bloggie to SEE what was going on with your leggie, but it sounds like what happened to ME when I was a puppy! The ultimate diagnosis was soft tissue and I rehabbed accordingly ... SWIMMIES CURED ME Kirby! Can your Mom find a doggie pool for you? It is the best ever cure ...! Let me know if I can help! I am so happy that you are okay!

Love,

Putter ...!
