AquaPaws Case of the Month October 2019

Congratulations Sweet little “Bijou” Bardacos is our October AquaPaws case of the Month! Bijou is a 12 yr old Brussels Griffon owned and loved by her owner Jacquetta Bardacos. Bijou is suffering from Intervertebral Disc Disease and Myelopathy in T13-L1 and her owner decided on medical management instead of surgery. We began working with her in early August when she was in pain and unable to walk. She has now completed almost 24 sessions in our underwater treadmill, multiple strengthening exercises, both here and at home, and laser therapy. Bijou has improved quickly and is much stronger than when we first saw her. She has gained 6.5 cm of muscle overall, and has lost 2 lbs as well, and is now 100% mobile and is set to “graduate” from rehab in the next couple weeks! Thanks for bringing in this little sweetie pie, we sure do love this determined little ball of fur with the big personality!
