Keep Healing Waters afloat!
Kenzie is nearly 16 years old. As a younger Scottie, she went against the idea that Scotties don't swim. She loved and enjoyed the water and so enjoyed swimming in Lake Erie. Today, her third visit at Healing Waters, she was relaxed and so very happy. I cried tears of joy to see her "young again". This has helped her during the week to have much less arthritic pain too. In part due to her weekly swims Kenzie lived to the ripe old age of 18!
Our 9 year old Basset Hound, Axe, had surgery in August 2012 for a slip disc in his neck. He had no use of his back legs and his front paws were crossed and locked tight. We were told it could take 4 - 6 months for him to start walking. If after 6 months he still wasn't walking, he would not walk again. We started taking him to therapy at Healing Waters in October. Beth, Judy and the staff were truly our saving grace. Just shy of his 4 month recovery, Axe started walking. Every session was not only a healing process for Axe, but a healing process for us as well. It provided the opportunity to meet and talk with people who share the same love for their pet and the same challenges we were facing with Axe's situation. We went from watching Axe float around on a raft holding tightly to Judy's shoulder for comfort to watching him swim like a champ on his own like he never missed a beat! There truly are no words to express our gratitude!! Thank you so much for helping us give our boy a second chance!
