Shortly after rescuing Lucy, our Newfoundland, we discovered that there was a very good chance that she would require an invasive surgery, TPLO. To avoid this we researched alternative methods to ease Lucy’s discomfort and made changes to both her diet and her activity level, but that wasn’t quite enough. We stumbled upon the Upward Dog Rehab booth at the Dog Expo and after chatting with Sarah we knew this was something we wanted to try for our Lucy. Over the past few months of working with Sarah, she has provided in-home visits, hands on care, advice, and introduced progressive exercises that have strengthened Lucy’s joints, increased her activity levels and made her a happy and healthier dog. Three months ago Lucy would go on a 10 minute walk and by the end of her walk she would be slow and her hind leg would be dragging a bit; now Lucy goes for longer walks twice a day and wants to keep going – to the point where she is trotting and pulling us along. She does not drag her leg and she even gets the zoomies occasionally and has no limping or discomfort afterwards. This could not have been possible without Upward Dog Rehab and we are so appreciative of everything Sarah has done for Lucy. We cannot thank you enough!
