Meet Star Of The Week Molly!

Molly came to us 4 weeks ago with a sore right hind leg, she was struggling to put weight on it due to a cruciate problem and arthritis. She is having a programme including laser and home exercises and has even got over her previous water dislike to enjoy the underwater treadmill! Molly has been on a strict diet, lost 1kg, and most importantly is now much happier and using her leg a lot more. Molly will continue to have some more sessions here to keep building her muscles up and keeping her pain free.
Molly is super cuddly and sweet and has such a cute face! She loves tummy tickles!

Keep doing such a brilliant job Molly!
