Alfie is a 5 year old Border Collie who is always in a hurry. He pulls on the lead and likes to have a go at chasing cars as they pass. His antics have caused minor tendon strains and soft tissue damage to his paws on a few occasions.
Recently he managed to pull his owner completely off balance and got his right paw stood on causing severe bruising and lameness. After a trip to the vet to check for broken bones Alfie had some low level laser therapy (LLLT) to reduce the pain and swelling and promote good healing. We have also been working on his heelwork – prevention is better than cure after all.
