The Miracle of a Slow Recovery

This is the story of a small dog who was paralyzed and learned to walk again. She became a reflex walker, and later learned some regular walking, so that now she does both.

It was a slow recovery, taking months of physical therapy and waiting for the nerves to heal.

Recovery did not end when she began walking. It continued for years.

The story is told from medical records, forum messages, and emails written at the time.

Important points are highlighted.

I would like to think that our slow recovery would be encouraging to others who do not see immediate recovery in their dogs.

May Katie's accomplishments shine out as a light for others...
