Petey and the folks at CARE

Ok..most of you have heard the stories of our Dalmatian Petey, who rather suddenly lost the use of one of his back legs. Perhaps most vets would suggest euthanasia, but since Petey had recently had heart problems, and was under the care of a cardiologist, we took him to see if this was related to his heart. wasn't. IT was a neurological disease called "Wobblers Disease" which afflicts larger dogs. Perhaps, we were told, he could regain the use of his leg through rehab. So, we were sent to this amazing place where Petey has been in "rehab" now for a few months. For those of you who have been hearing the story, I want to post this link so you can see where we are going, and what we are doing.

These are amazing vets, doing amazing work and I want to say THANKS to all of them for the care that they give Petey. He can ALMOST get up now...and they never give up. Thanks to all the staff at CARE!!!
Note: Our Petey passed in March very peacefully and in my arms. He was quite a guy, and we miss him terribly. We'll always remember his antics, and his great love of life, nature, and walks.
