“Once we finally had the right diagnosis we realized that he would never walk like a normal dog,” Upton said. “But having the right diagnosis was super important for his doctor, as it allowed her to tailor his therapy around his very specific needs.”
Connor now goes to therapy three to four times a week, and does a variety of exercises designed to strengthen his core muscles, back muscles and, of course, his back legs. His foster parents even learned some stretches to do with Connor at home, so that he’s constantly making as much progress as he possibly can. He absolutely loves going to therapy, and in general is an incredibly happy, loving, positive dog.
