Reilly’s Recovery Part Tres: Water Therapy

5 Dec

As I mentioned in the last post about Reilly, the surgeon recommended we try water therapy to help him regain his mobility and balance. So we did. And this is how it went. (You’ll have to click the link – I couldn’t embed the videos directly. Actually I could, but I’m too cheap to upgrade.)

 You can see that Reilly is not a fan of the water. I’m pretty sure the thought he was drowning. After a few minutes of trying to “swim”, he realized he was not, in fact, dying. We aren’t cool enough to own an underwater doggy PT treadmill, so we had to coax him to try to walk.

So we’re definitely not 100% yet, but he’s slowly gaining some movement in his hind legs.
