Bracken’s Story

“Bracken our 14.5 year old Golden Retriever has been on three legs for 6.5 years after undergoing a left hind limb amputation (or hemipelvectomy) for the treatment of a peripheral nerve sheath tumour. Lately he has struggled to walk as his rear leg is arthritic with marked muscle wastage and he has arthritic front legs as well. Our vet referred us to Davies Veterinary Specialists Therapy and Fitness Centre for Physiotherapy treatment which we were more than happy to agree to.

Thanks to the wonderful care and commitment of the Physio team his weak leg has become much stronger and he has more flexibility in all of his joints. I just wish they had told Bracken he only has three legs! Thanks to Davies we now have our amazing boy back to near normal.”
