Tank Update - Jan 31, 2014

A great update on Tank!!

From his rehab vet: "Tank is progressing well with his rehab – he has gained 3 cm and 2 cm of thigh muscle on his left and right hind legs respectively (we’ve been working more on his left as that leg was smaller in regard to muscle mass initially – so the legs are becoming more equal). This is good progress, and I expect it to continue!"

Here's a video of Tank working hard in the hydrotherapy tank. Fabulous!!

At this week's hydrotherapy session Tank did 24 minutes in the tank with 8 sprints. He then went to PetSmart where he had a great time; lots of attention and loving from all ages... the kids loved him. He continues to do exercises at home and is making progress with weight loss too. Next week he goes for x-rays and hopefully we can set a date for surgery with the orthopedic surgeon. Paws crossed for this loveable guy!

We are still continuing to fund raise for Tank, as he does need both hips done. If you'd like to contribute towards his care please visit our Canada Helps page at https://www.canadahelps.org/dn/2969.  We are a division of HART and a tax receipt will be issued for your kind donation.  Please select TANK's HAPPY HIPS from the drop down menu to direct your donation specifically to Tank!

Together we can make Tank's hips happy and give him the life he deserves!
