    Awesome, let me know! If it works well for you, I may get one too. Tyson's a little stiff when he gets up off the tile. ( I guess bc its so hard ) -- its not nearly as bad when he's on the carpet. But he's older, and once he's up and moving, I think his muscles warm up and he's fine, but anything I could do to help him - I will

    Oh, and thank you - I always wished he would take off with the skateboard. He will play with it, push it, and semi get on it, but that's about it. Haha.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    never thought of it, but it is worth a try.

    @AWD GS Many years ago, when I lived in N.J., I had to take several horses, and my poodle to The U of P for serious surgeries. If it comes to her needing surgery, you might check with them. I can't remember if they are even near where you are. Whenever I read about the lux knee, I've always wondered if a wrap would help. I am very interested to hear, when you try it. hope it does help your girl!

    figured id stop back for an update. i got the compression sleeve monday however it wasnt very helpful because of the way her leg is shaped. it fit tight nicely at and above the knee but below it was very loose because the diameter of the leg is much smaller. needless to say she wasnt too fond of that and was trying to pull it off. long story short however, its slowly getting better and its putting more weight on it now. just have to give it more time

    Bummer, it was hard to get Ty's leg wrapped too a while ago when I was trying to cover a spot I wanted to heal, bc of his turkey leg shape it kept falling off. But! I am happy to hear that its slowly getting better

    My whole heart, Tyson.
