Billy’s concerned owners brought him into our clinic when they found he couldn’t use his back legs.  After some xrays and tests that ruled out any broken bones, we told his owners that he may or may not gradually recover the use of his back legs. They were keen to hope for the best, and he has stayed at our clinic having all his needs cared for by the nurses and vets. He’d been with us for a few days when we had a great idea! Why not ask Elena (our animal physiotherapist) if she could do some physio and laser treatment on him? So far, Billy has had 3 treatments of physio and laser therapy, and he is slowly but surely improving! He now has withdrawal reflex in his back legs, and is gaining a bit more strength in them too. Elena has taught the nurses some exercises they can do with Billy a few times a day to help strengthen his muscles.
