I can now officially say that Belles limping has officially stopped, and i couldn’t be more excited and happy for her well mainly relieved. Unfortunately because she had the cast on for about 2 months she has lost her stamina and muscle in that leg. But thats ok because we are doing some puppy training to help build her stamina and muscle. SO, here is our PT with Belle!
We have been doing Hot Doga, Puppy massages and some puppy workouts. This is our schedule:
5:45am-5:55am: Puppy Massage
She gets a full body massage every morning but my main focus is massaging her right paw and making sure we rub out any pain or discomfort she might have.
12:30-12:35: Walking Intervals
Since she can’t walk a whole lot these days, i have been making sure to do intervals with her so she dissent over due it and possibly re-hurt her paw. So we started out with 30 seconds and a minute rest and made it to a minute walking and a minute rest and now she can walk for 4 minutes with a 2 minute break.
5pm-5:15pm: Hot Doga
This takes place in my room while the heater is on full blast and we do some doga poses just to help stretch out and keep that little pup relaxed because she is definitely frustrated with not going on long walks. Plus yoga/doga is good for everyone!
