Meet Sassey! This sweet girl has been a patient of our physical therapy department since 2013!
Sassey had Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD) and had a left hemilaminectomy to her T12-T13 vertebrae in February of 2013. During her first session, Sassey was unable to stand, showed some mild motor in her hind limbs with sling walking, and allowed bilateral hind limbs to knuckle under in standing.
Each week during her physical therapy sessions, Sassey showed a little improvement in her hind limbs, and then on March 3, 2013 - she took her first steps! From there, our rehabilitation team continued to work with Sassey weekly until she was able to walk well on her own.
Sassey, at almost 14-years-old, is back to doing all the things she loves! She still visits us every six months for a check-up and exercise session. #petsgetphysical... See MoreSee Less
