Tuesday 19th January 2021

We met puppy Charlie 1 month after her car accident where we guided her pawrents throughout the long journey of rehabilitation from nerve paralysis at front leg. Charlie receives several times of physiotherapy on a daily basis including: sensation stimulation, therapeutic exercises, Assisi Loop (PEMF) therapy, heat therapy and massage from her dedicated owners. All these in effort to help maintain the range of motion of her joints and stretching her tendons at the injured left front leg. Look how far she has made it!
