Lilly Claire

My brand new Yorky puppy, Lilly Claire, fell off the bed 3 days after I got her and fractured her leg. It was splinted for the next four weeks, but there were some unexpected side effects that made it difficult for Lilly Claire to bend her leg, and her knee cap was slipping in and out of her tibia. My doctor recommended doggy rehab for Lilly and I laughed. I had never heard of such a thing! If the ...Read More >>

After being incorrectly diagnosed by two orthopedic specialists for a cruciate ligament tear we went to “CARE” for a 2nd opinion.

I had never cared for a dog with a disability before and I was quite nervous. Scooby?s hind right leg was atrophied and he wouldn?t let it touch the ground ...Read More >>
