Since she broke her leg and it started to heal, she has gone from strength to strength. However, the only thing that hasn't got strong is her (now VERY withered) bad leg, as all the muscle has wasted away. If I walk her VERY VERY slowly she will weight bare. Around the house, she does move about and put some weight on it. However, as soon as she sets off, even at a slow pace she simply hops and refuses to weight bare. I suspect she is just being lazy as hoping is easier for her! I plan to take her for some hydrotherapy sessions, but is there anything else I can be doing to encourage her to use it? Otherwise I suspect that very soon all my hard earned savings will have been a waste - we may as well have just chopped it off!!!
