Shadow is much improved but still having trouble with his forelegs. Hubby and I have little formal training for our jobs as physical therapists, so we consulted with Dr. Miller before we began our administrations.
First we gave Shadow two shots to help relax his tendons. Next, we splinted his legs with a combination of splints carved from PVC pipe and ground smooth, old dish towels, stretchy Vetrap, and duct tape. Shadow is normally quite affable, but he apparently took offense at being poked and held down for the procedures because after we let him up, he casually walked passed me and aimed a sideways kick at my leg. I suppose it’s not ethical or respectful to laugh at a patient, but we did so anyway!
Hubby, who always has football on the brain, said that Shadow now looks like an Oakland Raider.
“Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and disregards the offenses of others].”
