Disabled Dog Friends....Stories

Greetings from Ireland!

Cooper I just came across your site and I was so happy reading all about the wonderful care you have given your dogs!

My cooper is 1 and was diagnosed with sensory neuropathy about 7 months ago. It's a genetic degenerative disease that causes his feet to go numb and then gradually moved up the legs. We were advised to put him to sleep. My dog was happy and not in pain so I wasn't going to put him to sleep! Now 7 months on he's receiving accupuncture every week and is starting to walk better, have more feeling in his feet, and the back paws that were Knucking are starting to turn around and correct. It's truly a miracle.

He is a lot of hard work as he must wear socks and shoes, and needs to be bandaged as he chews his legs due to a tingling sensation he gets every now and again but overall he is fantastic.

I've attached a picture for you to see. I'm so glad I came across your site. Caring for a disabled dog is the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I love him with all my heart and I'm glad that there's more people who feel the same about their disabled dogs too and they're willing to give them a chance!
