Swimming Lessons

My dog, Shadow, is 12 years old and has several health issues - one we haven't even identified yet.  But the arthritis in his hips has grown worse and the vet recommended hydrotherapy.  As in going swimming - so as to get some exercise without the pressure on his joints.

It sounds ridiculous and it isn't cheap and he isn't even having any fun, but I rather think I see some improvement. 

So stop rolling your eyes.

A couple of friends of friends opened a dog center for dog watsu and water therapy called "the Rex Center." Some of the dogs seem to like it. For certain canine conditions, it makes a big difference. Hope Shadow enjoys it a bit more.
