My 100+ lb huskie lost the use of his hind leg due to a failed hip displasia surgery at another clinic; I searched via the internet only to find 1 clinic using an aqua treadmill in western michigan. just 1 clinic. Champ had not used his leg for over 6 weeks and the muscles were almost atropied. After just 1 session with Dr. Comrie my dog was standing and putting weigh on his atropied leg. Dr. Comrie and her wonderful staff were able to get Champ back to bending his knee, then placing his paw down and ultimately walking safely up stairs. The aqua therapy on the threadmill reduced the weigh burden on his leg while his nervous system re-programmed so that he could again control his hind legs. We had been told to amputate... but, it's been 3 wonderful years since rehadbilation with Dr. Comrie and Champ is still climbing those stairs. If you have any doubt of what's possible, please meet with Dr. Comrie.
