This is my 15 year old dog Kelly trying out water treadmill therapy for the first time. He has some joint problems and starts limping after 3 or 4 blocks on his walks. He's doing very well for 15, but his holistic vet thought he could benefit from this type of therapy, as it allows the dog to build muscle while taking the pressure off the joints. At first, he was only using his front legs, but after some guidance from the vet, you can see that he began to use all four. His "brother" Joe can be seen pacing the room, who is also 15.
Anyone else tried this therapy for their dog? Just curious what the results were like.
