Tyler's PT Session
Here are some photos, although not the best, of Tyler doing his PT workout. First he has heat applied to his leg while he is being massaged all over. After 10 minutes or so of heat, Nancy works on flexing his joints, then onto the peanut (large rubber ball shaped like a peanut) for weight bearing exercises, followed by some weight shifting exercises on the wobble board. After he's done with those, he goes into the tank for his underwater walk. His last session, he walked for 11 minutes with a break half way through. By the time the "walk" is ending, he's whining in the tank and ready to get out. Because he can't go to the groomer yet, and fur is growing, I blow him dry when he gets out of the tank after which his leg is iced for about 10 minutes, then on to home and a full brush out. So far so good without matting. Boy, his coat, although still short, hasn't been this long since he was 6 years old when I went to the puppy cut. Who knows, he may actually become a full coated Hav in his old age!
