Dogs Can Learn to Walk Again After Disk Ruptures

Many people don’t realize that a dog who is unable to walk after spinal surgery for a disk rupture (called a laminectomy) may learn to walk again, particularly with the help of physical rehabilitation therapy.
In this Before & After video from Scout’s House, we show a small dog who was paralyzed following a disk rupture and laminectomy surgery–and who had brain stem complications–but who learned to walk again with the help of rehab therapy from Scout’s House. In fact, this dog even walks better today than in the After portion of this video!
