Hannah’s Rehabilitation Story
Hannah began coming to see us for rehab a few months after her brother, another rehab patient here, passed away. She began to slow down and have many of the common troubles older dogs get, and the passing of Taz seemed to make them worse. She began both laser and hydro therapy and now comes in 3 times a week. Hannah has made great strides (pun intended!) in her mobility and is much more active. She has gained muscle in her hind end so she isn’t collapsing when she eats or stands for longer periods of time anymore. She’s even able to go up and down stairs again. She has more energy and definitely keeps her parents on their toes! She’s doing great for an older girl, and we’re so happy rehab is giving her her strength back.
Taz died in January, 2016 a few days after his 14th birthday. I know the therapy at Greenbriar not only extended his life, but definitely enhanced the quality of his life. Thank you to all.
Hannah is doing laser and hydrotherapy 3x a week. She is on the underwater treadmill for 14mins at 1.3miles per minute 3x a week. She is eating better, she (what I call) bounce runs around and we have even had her a few times at day care. She use to avoid all dogs except her big brother, now she has been interested in meeting a few small dogs in the neighborhood.
Thanks to all the staff at Greenbriar and a VERY SPECIAL thanks to Erin who has worked with me and Hannah. It seems you CAN teach old dogs new tricks.” – Patty Morningstar
