Today it has been three weeks since Sidney had the Femoral Head Ostectomy surgery to ease the pain from hip dysplasia. He's been ok'd to start taking short walks and take water therapy sessions.
We are very lucky to have a hydrotherapy location about 10 minutes from home. It is called the Total Dog Canine Swim and Fitness Center. The owner and trainer, Natalie, is an RVT with 30 years experience. She was so good with SIdney, I can't tell you how happy I was with our session today. She spoke soothingly and praised him well when he would swim. Sidney is notoriously anti-water, so I was convinced he'd cry and fuss, but by the end he actually seemed to be liking it!
Sidney is using a swim vest that was sent to us by Marianne and Corgi. Thank you so much! I hope you can see that it fits him well and he looks great in it!
Hehe, he look sso happy being toweled off. Next session on Thursday!
