Baby Steps

Lisa reports on Wally's progress:

So it has been over 2 weeks since Wally had his first heartworm treatment. To my relief he is back to eating, peeing and pooping all by himself!! To my amazement he also climbed up a flight of 6 steps when I was trying to rinse him off.

He is the energizer Setter and his good days are much better than his bad. He still can’t hold himself up long enough to eat standing (he flops down and then I have to push the food bowl back to him) but over all his appetite is good. He needs a lot of chiropractic care to help with his weak back and leg muscles- but I have no doubt he will get stronger in the next few months.

Once he has his 2nd treatment in 3 weeks, I will be actively looking for a new foster home for him. A retired person that can help do some muscle building therapy would be ideal."
