Fred's patella fully healed

For those of you not on FB. Fred is now hiking his 3 miles again. I want to thank the people who suggested I look into other alternatives to surgery. The homeopathic vet worked. He will not need surgery at this point! He is running and playing now Even with a grade 3/4 luxating patella, he is running fine. It appears his partial CCL tear healed too. I swear by the asian herbs......

Check him out on his hike:

Good news, amigo Freddie! Now get out there and RLH! I take my Popi on a 3 or 4 mile hike each day too. He could lose some weight!

I always feel like I have an empty belly, do you think Asian accurate puncture or urbs would work on that too?

besos, Ricky Ricardo

Yo Ricky! Thanks buddy. I am glad to be back. I was mortified having to ride around in that stroller for a month...sheesh. I don't know if the asian herbs would help with your belly. I feel you pain. Mom keeps me lean because of my knee. Brother Scudder is way shorter than me and is allowed to be a pound bigger than me.....Figure that one out. And she thinks she spoils us.....NOT!!!

WTG, Fred! So glad that the nonsurgery route worked for you too, says Tyler. Loved the video.

Wow, I am sitting here cheering inside and trying not to cry. I am so happy it worked out this way for Fred. I am happy that he is a dog and able to go forth into the world with a sense of fun, now that he has been freed from limitation. Maybe not forever, no one knows for how long, but the point is that he isn't worrying about it, he's just living! With much joy, it seems. Man, dogs are awesome!
