December 17, 2016: Suji Enters Rehab!

Yes, years of hard living have taken their toll.    So, today, Suji entered rehab…

First, a little test of those gimpy hindquarters.  Yes, they’re weak and she suffers from hip dysplasia, but she can really motor when she gets up a full head of steam.

Into the tank for her hydrotherapy session.  The handle atop her little red life vest gave her the appearance of pug luggage.

Off to a slow start but, by the end of the session, she was positively motoring.

Then, it was time for her laser therapy.

Doggles?  Check!

We concluded things with her daily carpet run.

  1. Wow! Suji did very well!
    I’ve heard of hydro therapy being good for hip & some back injuries. But what does laser therapy do?
    Did your vet recommend the carpet walks & hydro workouts?
    You could use a couple of area rugs with rubber grip beneath to use in your apartment.
    You and Akemi are such good pup parents. God bless you.

  2. You’re good doggy parents! 🙂 And a belated congratulations on your new addition! 🙂


  3. Awwwe, what a sweet little girl. She may be enjoying all the attention and physical activity so much, she may do it without getting a reward or treat. Truly a pampered pup. As it should be.

    Can I come live with you?

  4. What wonderful images to sign on to… She may have had a miserable start, but fortunately they live for the moment, and her moments are love and kindness now.

  5. I’ve done water therapy for dogs, post back surgery and it works! Suji has a different problem but I’m hopeful you will see improvements. Some good ole TLC!

    How’s the weather there? Tornadoes are passing over/around us. These weather changes are not fun.

  6. Suji is making such improvements! Wow! So cool how well she is running on the carpet now without any back wheel assistance! Hope sweet Lulu is doing better too?? and hope poor Bubba is hanging in there having to now deal with 2 sisters ganging up on him!

    Hey @Das! Very Good to hear from ya! Hope you n hubby are hangin in there too! XO

    @KathyC How’s new job working out?

    @Tam Stay safe beautiful. Sending hugs hope n love your way always!

    ~Wishing everyone Nollaig shona dhuit! ~. 🙂
    Happy Solstice! Yule! & Chanukah too!

  7. Amazing Suji! You go girl!! You all are such terrific puppy parents. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Awwww what a trooper, she really got moving after her therapy. Maybe I need hydrotherapy. hmmm.

  9. How amazing is little Suji?! She’s a fighter, just like Lulu. Must be yours and Akemi’s loving influences.
    I’ve never seen veterinary hydrotherapy in action and definitely haven’t heard of laser therapy before…. (Please explain sometime, when you have a spare moment. I’d love to know)

    As always, thank you so much for sharing.

  10. That is so cool. Suji is doing phenomenally. You truly are great doggy parents. She is just flying down the hallway, too. So much progress in such a short time.

    We have a place here called Rummy’s Beach Club. People can take their pets there to swim privately (and/or actual therapy). Its not too far from me at all.
