Happy Birthday, Frankie!

Today is Frankie's 5th birthday!  So, today is all about my doodlebug.  We videotaped his little birthday party (sorry, its a bit grainy).

Of course, Nathan tried to steal some of Frankie's doggie ice cream.   But, I think they both enjoyed the treat. 

Happy Birthday, Frankie!  We love you!

10 days post last K-laser treatment

Well, no significant improvement from the K-laser.  Perhaps some slight improvement in his walking, a bit steadier on grass.   I was hoping we might see more meaningful changes, but even a little improvement helps because the better he walks, the stronger his leg muscles get.  So, it's a bit of a chain reaction.   We've gone about 6 weeks now without a poop in bed, so there is definitely improvement there.  We are only about 6 weeks away from the 1-year mark.  I can't believe it's been that long since this whole thing started.

One week after 1st of 3 laser treatments

So....Nathan had his 3 K-laser treatments last week (Mon, Wed, Fri).   Not seeing any changes at this point.  But, still hoping to see some improvement.  Our vet who does the laser is actually putting together a video for K-laser and they want Nathan to be in it.  They were looking for dogs who have had the therapy who are also, of course, that's Nathan!!     Nathan loves to be in the spotlight!  The shoot is on Feb 22nd.  Not sure how long it will take them to put the video together....

K-Laser Treatment - First Session

Here's a video of Nathan getting his treatment today.

And, walking around the office...

He got the treatment all along his spine, as well as, directly on his bladder and on his anal sphincter.   Next treatment is on Wednesday.   I'm really hoping we see some exciting improvement.   If you are on YouTube, my vet (Amazon Animal Hospital) has a page of videos, many about the K-laser.
