Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment while I review your concerns.
I'm so sorry to hear that Mae was injured. It sounds like she is going through the appropriate physical therapy to regain function.
As seen in horses with Sweeny, the prognosis to regain her muscle mass is very poor. Once the muscles are atrophied they are, unfortunately, not likely to gain their previous size and strength.
Dogs with this condition can live happy, active pet lives but the likelihood of a demanding agility lifestyle in, sadly unlikely.
Again, my condolences on her injury.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am here to answer all the questions you have. If you have no other questions, I would greatly appreciate your positive review (5 stars). Your review helps connect Experts with other customers so your input is highly appreciated, and it is the only way that I am compensated. Thank you!
