Featured Grateful Pet—Roxy Mae 4 Years After her ACL Repair!!

Above is a picture of Miss Roxy Mae. Mom sent us this picture of her this past March to show us how well she is doing after her ACL surgery here at Helping Hands in July of 2013! We so love to get updates on our patients. Mom included the following e-mail, along with the picture:

Roxy and I would like to thank Helping Hands! She had ACL surgery on her right knee 4 years ago.  […]

Roxy and I will never forget!
Bless you all at Helping Hands for giving Roxy her life back.

Mom and Roxy drove down to Helping Hands from Maryland to have her ACL surgery. Following our strict recovery protocol after ACL surgery here at Helping Hands is critical to its success. Mom had to crate Roxy Mae for the first two weeks after surgery. Roxy was only allowed out of the crate during that time for brief potty breaks while on a short leash. At the two week point, Roxy had her sutures removed and was given instructions going forward in her recovery (which is typically 8-12 weeks). We tell parents that the recovery is often harder on them than on their pet, but all that hard work is worth it. Way to go Penny! Thank you for being such an awesome Mom to your Roxy Mae 🙂

Below is a very educational video we put together to help parents understand the process and be informed, so they can make the best choice for their pet.

You can read more about ACL tears and how you can schedule the surgery if needed here. We sure hope your pet never tears his or her ACL/CCL, but if they do, we are here to help.

    Our vet recommended that our dog Toby have a dental and out neighbor that is involved in pet rescue recommended Helping Hands. The poor little guy had such bad breath. He is not the most friendly dog and is scared very easily. He had the dental and did very well. All the people that I interacted with at Helping Hands were so helpful, kind and informative. Toby didn’t freak out either! Thank you so much Helping Hands for taking such good care of our Toby and keeping it affordable. You are all wonderful people.

    So sorry for Chilly’s cancer diagnosis. He was comfort to us in Dec. 2015 when our Standard Black Poodles had a Spleenectomy by you. Noodles is now 9 years old, doing well. Such a wonderful place you have, with loving, caring employees. Hugs to Chilly, and a comfortable passage over the Rainbow Bridge when he lets you know it’s time.
