Meet Milo.  He is an incredibly sweet, 10-month old Labradoodle. 

In August of 2018, he suffered a Fibrocartilagenous Embolism (“FCE”).  It’s the doggy version of a stroke.  As a result, he lost strength, balance, and proprioception (sense/awareness) in his hind legs. 

Take a look at the first video to see how wobbly he was.  Milo has been coming to Aqua Paws for aqua therapy, balance exercises, core strengthening exercises, manual therapy, and cold laser.  His family diligently works on his home exercise program.  Milo is making great strides in therapy.  See how well he is doing after only 8 weeks of physical therapy.
