Sparky had his first massage therapy today. He seemed to quite enjoy it, and Lon Black (from Hope Vet) is very kind and talented. Sparky's back has been acting up again in the last couple of days, so I called Lon for an appointment. Yesterday, Sparky had a difficult time sitting down. He remained in downward dog position for some time, having difficulty in lowering his back legs. This morning he was moving very slowly on his walk, and when I can home in the afternoon, he had a hard time standing up. When he did finally get up, he immediately peed on the floor (unfortunately, in the house). After his massage, he did seem to loosen up, and is moving a little better. We have another appointment next week and hope for a speedy recover.
