This handsome boy is a great example of how a dog’s weight impacts on their mobility and rehabilitation. Luke, an eight-year-old Labrador, has elbow dysplasia and came to the ARC as the resulting lameness was starting to impact on his quality of life. Luke weighed in at almost 30kg when we first met him, so as well as a course of laser treatment and hydrotherapy on our underwater treadmill, Luke started a weight loss program. Less than three months later, he is now a much healthier 26kg. Not only does he look amazing, his lameness has improved dramatically. Well done Luke!
