WHAT'S INSIDE:

PET of the MONTH

Jennifer Brooks, PT, MEd, CERP, CCRP, works with Jean and Sid LaPoint on hind limb and core strength.

My elderly pointer SID, who has been my buddy and companion for ten years had to suffer through my move from a house where he had enjoyed free range on a third of an acre lot for his entire life.  Our veterinarian always shook his head and said "he is such an amazing athlete and he just loves life".  Well, in order to sell the house Sid was restricted to a smaller and smaller running area and honestly he became depressed. He had suffered some chronic tendon issues (gastroc tears) in his hocks years earlier, and then at doggy day care he seriously damaged his knee (CCL sprain). The final insult was when I moved him to my new tiny condo in the city.  By that time he had lost so much muscle mass in his hind limbs, that his backside was just protruding bones.  

His ears were down. He limped along holding one leg tucked under his belly.  The vet, at this point called him an orthopedic nightmare. He said Sid needed CCL surgery but the recovery would put too much strain on the leg with the tendon issues. I spent a small fortune on a leg brace that just caused rub sores. The vet actually uttered the "E" word at one visit (euthanasia). Sid was on a cocktail of pain killers and drugs.


Then my dog walker [Christine Wharton of Lickity Split Pet Care Services] told me about Horse ’n Hound Physical Therapy. We started attending in October 2016. They've have had him on the underwater tread mill and stretching/massaging/strength training exercises coupled with cold laser light therapy. Sid has made a complete turn around in six months and (knock on wood) I believe we may have avoided surgery of his CCL injury, due to the tremendous strength gains he has made. He has all 4 feet back on the ground and loves his leash walks and playing with toys. He also loves it when we pull into the clinic! I have my happy elderly athlete back and I couldn't be more ecstatic with his pain-free mobility,  and neither could Sid actually. Thank you Jen and everyone at Horse 'n Hound! 🐶

Laser Therapy
Horse 'n Hound has essentially “brought Rascal back to life”.
After seeing the obvious benefits of the weekly laser treatments...at HNHPT,Rascal's Laser Therapy
we purchased our own laser treatment device. This has proven to be an excellent investment – because of our ability to provide frequent laser therapy to sore joints & muscles, we’ve been able to manage pain without the need for any drugs or medications. We continue regular exercise at home, using the exercise techniques that HnHPT provided to us.

Please consider a DONATION to
The "Pepper" Memorial Fund 

TO SUPPORT ANIMALS THAT NEED PHYSICAL THERAPY

Pepper was a 16 year old Rat Terrier who...(CLICK HERE TO READ MORE!)
 ...Diane and Rich had purchased a 10-pack Hydro therapy package. Upon contacting HnHPT with the sad news of Pepper's passing, they indicated they wanted their remaining $400 Hydro package purchase to go towards a donation for services needed by other dogs that could benefit from physical therapy but may not have the means to afford it. With this generous donation, we have developed the Pepper Memorial Fund for utilization by other needy dogs/animals. 

A big THANK YOU to Rich and Diane Travato for this generous gift —the inception of this fund-- that can keep on giving in the spirit of Pepper's memory. 

Please consider making YOUR REMAINING REHAB PACKAGE a contribution AT HNHPT - desperately welcome and most needed FOR DOGS AND OWNERS THAT CAN’T AFFORD REHAB.
