I was so worried about Burton! He seemed to be getting so old! But after just 3 physiotherapy treatments, my little Burton had returned to jumping to the chair, table, sofa and was easily moving up the stairs to his favourite resting place. Soon he was back to his old self, happy to play again and starting to work on his exercises. He misses you both now, and his spa days, but he's loving his new garden in Geneva! His vet here cannot believe he is this great at 18 years old and thinks my vet friend did a very very goooooood job in HK.
Dear Dr Jane and Sarah,
I just want to send this card to thank you for the time, care and patience you have given Ah B over the past 12 months. Your support and treatments have made his debilitating condition a little easier to bear even towards the end.
Ah B lived to a ripe old age of 15 years and though it was heart-breaking to let him go, he was blessed with people who loved and cared for him with kindness and compassion.
We are forever grateful for all that you’ve done for him.
Dear Dr Jane and Sarah,
We Ma Wanians wanted to express our sincere gratitude for all you have done for the Park Island guard dogs, Peaceful and Sky. You have brought Sky a harness and a peanut ball to help him stand and walk. These were his best moments in the last stage. You always give careers very clear explanations and keep all parties well-informed. It's people like you two that really care and that really make this world a better place. All your professional advice to the management office helped Peaceful and particularly Sky received better treatment and care that he needed. We couldn't thank you enough.
Natalie, volunteers and residents at Park Island.
Thank you to the awesome Paws in Motion team. One month post amputation, Samson is regaining his balance with 3 legs and appreciating life without bone cancer and he loves his regular massage and laser treatments, especially since he can enjoy it all in the comfort of his own home. The high rush of endorphins means he is passed out snoring for hours, at least until supper time. Dr. Jane has also tailored an exercise regimen to tone his tummy and back legs. Luckily this old sweet warrior will do almost anything for food.
You were kind enough to reply to my email regarding our gorgeous Ragdoll kitten who had swimmers syndrome. I wasn’t getting any help from any vets in the area and you were of enormous help to me.
He is doing absolutely perfectly. It was exactly what you suggested with him being too big for his bone, ligament and muscle development as he was by far the biggest in the litter with a big tummy! Both his front and back legs were splayed significantly, he was completely flat. (One vet told me it was neurological problem and I needed a referral to a specialist vet).
I was doing exercises with his legs frequently and I made a ‘run’ for him where he had to walk between two barriers which were close and which kept his legs in – we did that three times a day. As he got a few weeks older, he started to get a bit trimmer. He is now nearly 12 weeks old and his legs, both front and back, are perfect and he is running about no different at all to the other two in the litter.
It certainly wasn’t easy but we’ve learnt a lot – particularly that it’s rare in kittens and no vets around here know about it! Thank you very much once again – your knowledge and understanding of the condition so helped!
Two years ago, on 16 June 2015, I was introduced to the most amazing team at Paws in Motion, led by the awesome Dr. Jane McNae.
My two seniors, Kota and Keira, have been looked after by Jane and her wonderful assistant, Sarah Millar since then. Kota and Keira, or the Ks as they are known, were adopted from LAP when they were almost 10 years old and will turn 15 in August and October, respectively. Jane and Sarah have visited the Ks regularly (first bi-weekly and now weekly) to make sure that they are in the best possible shape to face their advancing years. Kota, in particular, benefits from the intensive sessions which combine laser therapy and manual massage. He is developing age-related weakness and stiffness in his hind legs and hips and is markedly more spritely after the sessions. He has so much more energy, he insists on longer walks and goes at a very steady pace. Keira is always by his side and is a naturally bouncy dog, refusing to admit she’s going to be 15!
Jane and Sarah are now part of our extended family and take such great care of the Ks. I see such wonderful results from the sessions that I often think I would benefit from getting a once-over from Jane and Sarah, myself!
Hi Dr Jane,
The Loop helps Yuby a lot. After using on the first day, we all noticed that he was walking around the house a lot more. And by the 3rd day, he surprisingly stood on his hind legs after taking a bath!! He hadn't been able to do that for many months. Usually he would sit in there and waited to be carried out.
Thx for prescribing him such a great device!!
Susan & Yuby
