Lilly gets her smile back...
Lilly was referred to us in late 2017 in order to assist with pain relief. She had severe hip dysplasia and struggled to get around.
The absence of part of her forelimb meant that Lilly tried to place the limb which resulted in rotation of the spine and a high impact of her other forelimb. Lilly tested the skills of our experienced hydrotherapists.
They trained Lilly to put her forelimbs on a plate – specially designed and exclusive to Tudor Treadmills - so that she could keep her balance whilst working her hind limbs in the treadmill. Lilly’s surgery went ahead as planned in January 2018 and was a complete success. She can now run and play and is back to enjoying life to the full as a young dog should!!
Since opening the hydrotherapy centre we have dealt with a wide range of clinical cases ranging from
osteoarthritis, post-spinal surgery rehabilitation to prehabilitation treatment for a patient requiring a
bilateral hip replacement.
