BB – Water Therapy for Degenerative Myelopathy

My Pug BB is 15 years old and suffers from a degenerative neurological condition that has caused weakness in her rear legs. As a result she has great difficulty in walking.

BB has been coming to La Paw Spa weekly for almost 2 years, and the swimming and massage work that Cindy does with her has made a significant difference in her leg strength. After her spa session, her legs are noticeably stronger and more flexible.

At first I didn’t think that she would do well, since Pugs don’t normally like to swim. Cindy gently introduced her to the water and BB is now a pro!

Her experiences at the spa have definitely improved her quality of life.
