UPDATES FROM ACT V:
March 27, 2015
ACT V Rescue & Rehab, South Hyland Pet Hospital, and Fresh Air Training are working together to restore Phoenix's health.
Remember: We're talking mental AND physical health.
It is a daily, complicated arrangement, but so far, it seems to be working.
Phoenix is tolerating laser treatment to his hips and back. Learning to be calm and still, to allow Vicki to use the laser on his body, isn't luck.
It also isn't 'because he's a good boy'.
It is a result of daily teachings, body handling exercises and learning positive associations between procedures and some high-value reward. (aka roasted CHICKEN!)
South Hyland Pet Hospital offers state-of-the-art treatments (such as laser therapy) to manage pain and promote healing. We are lucky to have them as part of his healthcare team. They reinforce our work; they help out in providing his care and are a deep well of resources.
'Team player' is the first word that comes to mind.
Supporting ACT V is generous community outreach on their part!
It's important to us that Phoenix grow up to be a nice boy. In fact, it's imperative. Thank you for supporting our efforts, and walking with us down a long and winding road.
Our Facebook friends are the best!
Have a good evening.
