Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!Hunter enjoyed his first “Aqua Paws” session this past Saturday.  He exercised on the underwater treadmill for 6 minutes and did great.  We’re told he’ll be doubling that time at his next session.  This will make him stronger and help with his balance.

Hi everyone, Hunter is doing really well; 4 days after surgery now.  He is a little spacy sometimes on all of the meds, he sleeps alot, and is still getting his balance figured out.  We wonder if he is tired due the healing process, or from boredom, or both.  He fell over pooping this morning […]
