Client Name: Carmen & Dina Addis
Patient Name: Miloh
Brief History of Pet
We adopted Miloh on August 20, 2014, from TLC because we were ready to open our home to another dog. He is your typical lovable hound and loves to cuddle on the couch when he is not accompanying his dad on hunting trips in the woods.
Miloh slipped a disk at L2-L3 that required two surgeries. At his heaviest, he weighed 98 pounds, and we put him on a diet. At the time of his injury, he weighed 84 pounds. Due to the surgeries and therapy and diet changes/exercises, he is currently 59 pounds. Dr. Cochran and his staff at VCA Aurora Vet Clinic performed the surgeries and saved his life. It was a 50-80% chance he would ever walk or run again after his surgeries. Through our hard work and support from the family and the staff at VSMRHG, Miloh has just about fully recovered. He now has a slight “swagger” when he starts to run that should recover in the following months, lol.
Miloh absolutely loves peanut butter to get him excited and ready to work during his sessions.
How VSMR has helped Miloh
Their care and support and professionalism was outstanding. They worked with us at every step to make sure we knew what to work on at home. We loved working with Carla.
At VSMR, we ask the owners of our Patient of the Month to choose a non-profit to be featured and donated to. Miloh’s owners have chosen The Caspian Fund, a nonprofit fund that prides itself on helping disabled pets live independent lives.
