12-Year-Old Husky Walks Again After Debilitating Injury

by Dr. John Weiner - November 16, 2022

Sedona, a lively 12 year old Siberian Husky, sustained what could have been a life ending injury four months ago. Giving up on his beloved companion was not an option for Carl Rost, Sedona’s owner. When Whitney Mitchell, a certified canine rehabilitation therapist in Sayre, PA, called me I was interested and eager to see Sedona. The injuries sustained in the fall from a deck significantly damaged both of her carpal joints (wrists) and made it impossible for her to support weight and even to heal enough so that she could walk normally. Veterinary orthopedic surgeons were consulted and for a number of reasons, surgical repair was not considered an good option for Carl and Sedona.

When I saw Sedona’s energy and enthusiasm for life it was clear why Carl was determined to find a way to get his friend up and moving again.

In this episode of Creature Care watch Sedona walk unaided for the first time in months with her new prosthetic support braces. These braces were custom made after my team and I first created a fiberglass casting of her from legs. From these castings Orthopets fabricated the special braces we placed on Sedona.

Sedona goes from fighting the new braces and trying to shake them off to moving up, down and around the grass outside our office..and the stairs — Her unexpected trot up the stairs brought a smile to many faces.

Helping pets like Sedona and committed owners like Carl is especially rewarding. I hope you will enjoy this episode of Creature Care and if you have any questions or comments just contact me.
