UPDATE: Nathaniel the Pomeranian

Posted on Thursday, September 17th

When we first introduced you to Nathaniel he was unable to walk due to some mysterious illness or injury. We asked for your help and you answered! Thank you! With your donations we were able to bring him to the UGA Vet School for five days where he was tested by their neurological department. In the end they ruled out numerous diseases and injuries, but have been unable to find the true cause. He has sensation in all his legs and is NOT paralyzed, however he simply can't muster the strength to walk. They all agreed he was a strange case and his symptoms presented weird. He is in NO pain, just unable to walk on his own. 

They suggested we wait about two months and try physical therapy and so far the time and therapy has seemed to help. He is already putting more weight on his joints and gaining strength in his front legs with the help of his AMAZING foster mommy! She works with him every day and even take him swimming in the pool for hydrotherapy. (That will have to be the next video we share!) Watch him work on his exercises below. You can read his full story here.

Nathaniel has a long road to recovery, but with your support and his foster mommy's help we are very hopeful he will make a full recovery. If you want to donate toward his continued care and costs please visit our donation page now. Even $10 helps!
