Severe Spinal Arthritis in Mixed Breed - hydrotherapy?
brittcoop024 posted:
Hello there. I have a 2 year old - shepherd mixed breed who have severe spinal arthritis from what they think was a strong impact to her spine as a puppy - possibly from being hit by a car and she has really difficult days where she can't walk. The spells come and go. I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on hydrotherapy or anything else that works well. Please let me know.

Thank you!
