Pet of the Month:

In late November of last year our Jack Russell/Rat Terrier Brady developed a limp in his left rear leg. After consulting with our vet, Dr. Judith Surdam, VMD, we found he had ruptured his cranial cruciate ligament (CCL). Being that he was 12 years old and had already been through many surgeries we were worried about adding another one. Hearing the various options we had, we decided to hold off surgery as long long as we could and start him on physical therapy through House ’n Hound Physical Therapy, recommended by our Dr. Surdam.

Meeting with Horse ’n Hound we discussed the benefits of PT and what could be done in his case. Hoping restrictive and controlled exercises could benefit Brady, building up muscle mass he lost, due to lack of use and scar tissue in the affected knee, as well as decreasing the risk of injury in his other over-strained leg. Although, his knee could give at anytime and surgery would never truly be off the table, physical therapy could also very much benefit him [and us as owners] pre-surgery, helping with conditioning and recovery time.

Though Brady improved over the two months of PT, his knee did finally give out leading us to meet with Dr. Julia Zitz, DVM, at Animal Medical Center in Nashua. She highly recommended the Lateral Suture repair for his type of breed, age and recovery time. It was difficult the first few nights after surgery, but he was walking within a week and starting physical therapy right after the stitches were removed. 

Although putting Brady through surgery was a tough decision --due to both medical expenses and the risks of surgery-- overall, it was worth the cost. Before the operation the probability of knee failure was high, and his knee would continue to diminish. It’s hard to see your dog in pain and not being able to carry his own weight. Post surgery we feel much more confident in Brady engaging in his old activities and performing his therapeutic exercise program. Now having some continued rehabilitation for post surgical knowledge, exercise strengthening, conditioning with gradual return to “off-leash” activities, we have tools necessary to help prevent further tear in his other knee and/or to rehabilitate if surgery is again necessary. HnHPT has been so helpful through this process with Brady. Many thanks, ~Donna & Glen

Please consider a DONATION to
The "Pepper" Memorial Fund 


Pepper was a 16 year old Rat Terrier who...(CLICK HERE TO READ MORE!)
 ...Diane and Rich had purchased a 10-pack Hydro therapy package. Upon contacting HnHPT with the sad news of Pepper's passing, they indicated they wanted their remaining $400 Hydro package purchase to go towards a donation for services needed by other dogs that could benefit from physical therapy but may not have the means to afford it. With this generous donation, we have developed the Pepper Memorial Fund for utilization by other needy dogs/animals. 

A big THANK YOU to Rich and Diane Travato for this generous gift —the inception of this fund-- that can keep on giving in the spirit of Pepper's memory. 

Please consider making YOUR REMAINING REHAB PACKAGE a contribution AT HNHPT - desperately welcome and most needed FOR DOGS AND OWNERS THAT CAN’T AFFORD REHAB.
