Jake is a 13.5 year old male Pug suffering from severe arthritis and instability to his right shoulder. Patient has significant arthritis to all four limbs, being treated with pain management and acupuncture. Radiographs were taken and sent to orthopedic specialist to evaluate. Due to his age and overall condition owner did not want to do any type of surgical procedure, so getting a brace was the only hope we had for him.
Jake started with the brace on for 2 hours a day for 3 days. The owner reported that he started walking more within the first three days. His progress has since continued to be remarkable day by day as we've seen the brace providing Jake with the stability he needs. After two weeks we started using laser treatment on top of the brace use, and he is like a puppy again and wants his brace on every day!
