Jasper's story

Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to purchase vital therapy equipment for our Animal Integrative Pain Clinic.

When we first met Jasper, he was unable to walk due to an inter-vertebral disc protrusion, and was carried around in a washing basket to keep him comfortable. It was immediately evident to our clinicians that Jasper needed surgery and intensive rehabilitation to get him back to his healthy, happy self.

Thanks to you and the U-Vet community we were able to buy a hydrotherapy pool, and help animals like Jasper recover from surgery, cancer treatment or osteoarthritis. The underwater treadmill helps our patients with warm water exercises, using the buoyancy of the water as support.

Because of donations, pets have benefitted from our enhanced services, which now include therapeutic exercises, laser therapy, acupuncture and an underwater treadmill. These facilities help provide the best rehabilitative care for all pets, which improves their chances of a fast and successful recovery.
