Kaia, about ten years old, came to us from a struggling single mom with four small children. Our vet discovered Kaia had old torn ligaments in both her knees, as well as arthritis, that made getting around quite painful. Rather than put this senior girl through stressful knee surgeries, Kaia worked with rehabilitation veterinary specialists. She responded very well. Kaia also dons her Muttknee brace to give her knees extra support if she is going to be especially active with her new family in the mountains.
