Hello and welcome to Monty. So sweet. He had an intervertebral disk disease issue a few years ago that was fixed and everything seemed to be fine.
But then it seemed to happen again. The owner did really well and was very pleased with opting for conservative management, so no surgery. The healing was quite quick. But after approx 4 weeks, they noticed that the kyphotic (arched) spine shape had remained. So they decided to get us involved to help.
This can be the case due to chronic back pain grumbeling away and poor strength in the core muscles. So we reduced his excercise right down to a little and often regime so snap into a better walking posture. We also gave core strengthening excercises.
We are pleased to say Monty has responded really well and has now lost the arched back and is enjoying his walk regime again.
Well done Monty and family.
