Gus is doing great

hi everyone.... thought I would update you on how Gus is doing. He is in physiotherapy now and doing so well. there is only 6cm difference in muscle mass between his back legs now. (there was 9cm when he started physio last week) He needs some coaxing into the water treadmill, but once he's in there he's doing great. His time was increased in there to almost 17 minutes today and a bit faster too. Leslie the physiotherapist is going to add time and speed and weights to him in the upcoming weeks. He also is getting cold laser therapy on his knee and he gets iced down when he gets out of the treadmill to act as a bit of a analgesic. Leslie is going to start doing stairs with him next week and hopefully he gets in the pool to free swim in a couple of weeks. Leslie assures me he will be almost perfect when we are done with the phsio in a few short weeks. I am so happy. Gus is such a wonderful teddy bear of a dog. I can't wait for him to be back to normal
