JJ suffered a ruptured disc in his spine rendering him paraplegic. We elected to have him operated on even though the chances were given as 3% of him ever walking again. It has been a long road of rehabilitation and he is still not walking, but his improvement has been amazing and the boots have gone a long way in helping him stand and protecting his rear paws when he walks with his harness… Only problem now he runs with such gusto that he keeps wearing the boots out!
