    DefaultAnother Chance update....

    Here's a couple of Chance updates from Joan (as posted on another forum):

    _______________________________
    I took Chance for physical therapy today. We were there for 1-1/2 hours. I was bracing myself for a huge bill. I was shocked when it was about a third of what I was expecting. It had to be a gift!!!! Chance is scheduled to go back after Thanksgiving. If you'd like to chip in for his care, that would be super. Once we get him on his feet, if there is money left over, I will give it to Central Michigan Labrador Rescue Network. Thanks a million.

    I have started to put a webpage together for Chance. But, right now, he and I are 2 whipped puppies. Wink It is time for both of us to go to bed. I will work on the webpage again tomorrow.

    Chance had a good night last night. No whimpering at all, so he is full of pep this morning. He managed to wiggle out of his front leg tapes so I am going to have to do a little better job with that. As one of the first steps, he will have to get those legs in under himself so he can raise to a sitting position. Dani said he had a good appetite and she was not kidding!
    ________________________________

    Once Joan posts the website address, I will post it here. Sounds like things are going well. I am researching grant money for Chance right now too.

    Anyways, take care little one...and start working those legs!!!!

    What did they do to his legs Dani? What kind of therapy are they doing? Is this a condition that can be corrected, since he's so young.

    Praying for the little guy!!!!!!!!

    I'm glad he's on the road to recovery hopefully. I too was wondering what the success rate is for correcting his problems and his being a close to healthy puppy and adult.

    We don't know what the success rate is or what his actual chances are going to be. Typically, swimmers are caught earlier on (like by 2 weeks of age) and are easily corrected at that age....it's going to be a little more difficult at his age...but he has the spirit, so that will work in his favor.

    Joan is taping or "hobbling" his front legs to get them to come under him: http://www.allpets.co.za/sabulldogcl..._Flatpuppy.htm

    Hope that puts it into perspective.
