THE STORY:

Update on Seal 7/20/2013

Seal takes smal steps on unerwater treadmill. View the video to the left.

Seal saw the neurologist on Monday July 15th at the University of Florida. He does have feeling in his back legs and we were sent to the Rehabilitation department for an evaluation. He was put in an underwater treadmill where small coordinated steps were observed. The doctors suggest aggressive therapy, electrical nerve stimulation, and stretching exercises as well as a customized wheel chair. He will need these therapies for the next 8 weeks to build up his rear muscles. Then they will determine the next best step for him. His next appointment is September 12th.

Thank you to Dr. Frieberg and his wife Tina for donating their time to our baby boy and to the Halifax Humane Society for standing behind Seal. To everyone who has donated, we could never thank you enough our hope has always been for Seal to have a better life and with continued support he will get there.  As one of our dear friends and Seal supporters once said "There is just something about Seal, you can't help but fall in love with him."

 

Seal was an abandoned dog that ended up at the Halifax Humane Society without the use of his back two legs. An incredibly lovable dog always looking for attention or someone to play with, it is difficult to watch him get around by dragging his legs on the floor. Luckily Seal was adopted by two employees of the shelter and has a loving home. Seal still gets bruises and scrapes from the constant rubbing. The $1,200 will pay for a neurological visit as well as prosthetic or braces to help Seal get around more easily and pain free.

All funds raised that exceed the $1,200 cost of helping Seal will go into the Halifax Humane Society's Emergency Medical Fund. These funds go to low income owners who cannot afford to pay for a necessary medical procedure. The EMF also allows for the HHS to pay for veterinary care for sick and injured animals that come into our care. 

Update on Seal:

Seal is now  a year and a half old and within the last four months Seal has started to push off his back legs and stand partly up, knocked kneed and not for long but still quite remarkable.  So his Dad and I had taken him for a new x ray and his spine has healed perfectly.  So we asked his Vet what this could mean is it possible for him to walk? His doctor suggests a neurologist to see if he is a candidate for prosthetic. He knows of a Vet. in Jacksonville who has done this before. If there is enough nerve and muscle function for artificial legs he can get prosthetic legs and walk on all fours for the first time in his life. If not he is still loved and admired for his strength and the happiness he has brought to our home.  We want to thank everyone who have helped up in the past. They have been a constant support system for Seal and us. Hopefully he will have his appointment in the next week or two and we will update as soon as we have more information.
