These videos relate to Urtice a 3 years old dachshund, operated from a disk herniation. Urtice had been equipped around two years after his operation. He has been using his Kerdog in phase 1 mode for around 8 months. He is now able to walk occasionally when he goes to urine or poop and sometimes when he “hunts” for kibbles.

Rehabilitation with his Kerdog is still underway and I’ll keep you posted on his future outcome. The recovery of the ability to walk again depends either on how deeply handicapped is the dog when it begins its rehabilitation process and on how long after the surgery operation the dog is equipped with its Kerdog
