Liberty 10-10-17

Hi All,

I wanted to update you on Liberty and his progress.

He is doing so well!  He had 2 check ups last week.  One with his primary vet and another with the vet who is monitoring his physical therapy.  They did some measuring of his muscles and movement.  I'm happy to report that the flexibility in both back legs has increased over 25% and the muscles mass in his left rear leg has increased by 2 inches and his right rear leg by 3 inches!!!

We were really delighted to hear these results.  The improvement is slow so we don't see it as clearly as someone who hasn't seen him in awhile.  But there is no denying we are moving in the right direction.


Our ultimate goal is for Liberty to be able to stand up from a sitting or lying down position all by himself.  He's doing it more frequently but not all the time, but definitely more than when he first arrived.  To aid this we are revamping some of his PT exercised and adding a few new ones to help built core strength, coordination and balance.  I'm going to try to post some short videos of one of the new exercises.  We always keep our sessions very short and upbeat with lots of praise and treats.
