Santa – sore front leg

Santa was limping on her front leg and the vet suggested physiotherapy treatment. Santa has an existing movement difficulty with her hind leg, she has a shortened gracilis muscle. So she moves a little differently and this over time puts some strain on her front legs and her back muscles. After a couple of physio sessions and a home exercise program, Santa is no longer lame on her front leg and is more comfortable in her back. She will have physio every couple of months to keep her so.

Santa’s owner wrote ” It meant a lot to me that my dog was so calm and relaxed about the treatments and immedietly took to Nycky who was calm and relaxed herself. This really helped the outcome of the physiotherapy. Each physiotherapy session had plenty of time allocated, not rushed and being treated at home was much better for my dog”.
