Hip dysplasia is relatively common in huskies as they age. This breed is known for having energy and playfulness, so losing functionality in their legs isn’t uncommon. Usually it is a gradual process, but for this poor dog, the onset was almost immediate. He just totally lost use of his back legs one day! Luckily his owner was dedicated to him and aware of what was going on. He thought maybe water therapy could be helpful. Many people do not realize this, but aquatics therapy is one of the oldest forms of therapeutic treatment and can be traced back to Roman times. This is largely due in part to the compression that water gives as you move your muscles around. It’s like working out and massaging the muscles at the same time.
