With Katy's ongoing arthritic knee problems I have looked into hydrotherapy. With have 3 in under an hours drive from me. Messaged one, they have got back to me & said they needed to contact my vet for a signed referral. My vet has signed so we will see how it goes thinking There's not much more I can do with supplements so it's got to be worth a try, don't you think?
1st appointment is July 2nd unless they get a cancellation nail biting

I think it's well worth the effort!

Good luck - does she like the water?

Yes especially muddy, smelly water Laughing Not too sure she will like the pool, she hasn't swam much. They also have a treadmill to video her movements on.

Ooh, how exciting. Please do let us know how it goes Smile

What supplements are you giving btw, see any difference ?
I’m glad to say that Opium is doing very well with her Flexadin praying and she’s pretty much back to normal.

She's on turmeric paste, cbd oil, salmon oil, Yumove & Metacam when needed. tbh I don't know if they are doing any good unless I stop them thinking Just ordered some Yumove senior to see if that is better.
Took her for a proper walk yesterday as it was cooler, big regret on my part, she was fine on the walk but very lame after we got home, couldn't put weight on her leg  Crying or Very sad Same again this morning but loosened up for a walk round the block.
I'm really hopeful the hydrotherapy could help her, I will let you know how she gets on  Smile
I'm glad to hear that Opium is doing well now Love Struck

Hope you find the solution to keep Katy comfortable.

Yumove is getting more difficult and expensive to find here, especially since brexit Sad
I’ve just bought some working dog which appears to have the same level ingredients as the adult but with an added something for digestion support. Might suit Nifty better (even if she’s no working dog, as such Laughing)

Opium is finishing her young and active which I really rate

Haven't had any problems getting Yumove but yesterday tried to use her prescription for Metacam before it runs out with the online pharmacy & they haven't any due to Global shortage! Surprised

Update! Had our 1st session yesterday, Katy was such a good girl checking out the equipment. Walked happily onto the treadmill, was a bit surprised when the water started coming in Smile But walked when it started moving.
They say she is pretty much tri-pawed atm, not using the leg properly. They measured the leg muscle, 36 on her good leg & 32 on the bad one!
When they increased the speed she started trotting but the girl said she shouldn't at that speed, she just wasn't striding out properly. The Spondylosis is also affecting her stride Crying or Very sad
Also need to lose some weight as she's baring most of her weight on the front legs! Need to have serious words with hubby!!!
7 more sessions booked, so if she doesn't lose some weight I'm basically flushing water away!

Thanks so much for the update Jen, very interesting too.
Good luck Katy in getting rid of those “covid kilos” Laughing  but even if she isn’t down to supermodel weight, I’m sure the sessions will have some benefit ! Maybe just a bit more limited Smile

Yes it's great Nifty, just surprised our vet didn't suggest it as they refer a lot of dogs there!!!! She will never be a little staffie as she's not K.C standard but a few kgs less will certainly help Smile They have suggested upping her food as I give her way under the suggested feed!

I'm confused - they're saying she could lose a little weight (well done, by the way...no mean feat for a Stafford!), but then you're told you're not feeding enough.

The guidelines on the packets are purely that - guidelines. Nothing's set in stone & all dogs are individuals. If she's had to cut back a little on exercise, then the amount she gets will be less.

The guidelines on the pack are 20-41kgs 200-320 grams, I was only giving her 100 grams a day plus extras. Now the extras have stopped her body will be feeding on muscle rather than fat! I know it sounds strange but she's lost that weight by doing 2x20min lead walks a day & seriously reduced extras!

Had our 4th session yesterday, she's been quite lame the last couple of days Crying or Very sad Behaved herself in there, they did the same amount of exercise as last week due to how her leg was. She did well & only tried to climb out at the end of the session Laughing Lost a bit more weight Big Grin
She nearly launched the lady out of the door to get back to me, she had forgotten how strong she is Laughing
Walking much better this morning Smile

Another session done today, Katy did well & did an extra minute on the treadmill! She said she's putting more weight down on her leg Smile seems to be enjoying it. Still exactly the same weight as on the last session but I didn't tell her about the saveloy & kfc that we had this week dont tell anyone I did reduce her food right down on those days!

Katy wasn't feeling motivated today so she had to get the gravy bones out! That did it, she said it was actually better as she could control Katy's stride better & worked her for an extra minute Smile More weight baring on the leg, couldn't weigh her as we were in the small cabin, next week on the scales nail biting

We've just done another session, this is the 3rd since I last updated. Katy did really well & is putting more weight down on her toes but still reluctant to put her foot down flat. They weighed & measured her today, she has gone from 31.15 down to 30.35kgs & built up her bad leg by a centimetre Smile
Certainly seems to be working Big Grin

I was just thinking about you today and I was going to ask how it’s going.
It’s nice that tape measure is confirming timid weighing indications. After all, they say muscle is heavier than fat.

Well done on all of your,progress Katy!

Had another good session today although Katy won't move now until the gravy bones appear Laughing I told them they've made that mistake rolling on the floor Still the same weight as last time, but at least she hasn't put any on! Weight baring well on her leg, just needs to stride out longer in her walk but we are getting there Smile

Really good news Big Grin

Nifty is going to orthopedic vet next week for spine and hip xrays.
She’s not really bearing weight correctly on her left hind so as with Opium, I just want to know what state she is in (skeletal)

Update on Katy's progress!
She had her 1st session back of the year last week, the dreaded weigh in after Christmas Surprised She had lost weight, down to 29kgs! This week weighed again, now 28.5kgs Smile She's weight baring much more now & stretching her stride out longer Big Grin
The injection the vet gave before Christmas is making a big difference & she's got her sparkle back inlove

Oh great news and good to hear she was reasonable over xmas Big Grin
Just wondering, is your hydrotherapy paddling in a smaller swimming pool or is it the treadmill that is filled up with water ?
