"Charly Bear already had severe arthritis when he started to lose strength and stability in his hindquarters after cancer surgery. It was recommended that we find a low impact, exercise alternative to help maintain his muscle tone without aggravating his arthritis. After an initial consult with the Team at The Puddle, we started a twice a week swimming regimen. They also provided guidance on improvements to Charly’s diet to remove possible inflammatory foods that could aggravate his arthritic pain or weakness. Charly has shown significant improvement in his ability to keep his balance while standing/walking since we started. All in all, Charly continues to have his independence. We attest this to the Team at The Puddle. We are grateful for the service they provide."

"Jordan grieved after the loss of her big brother Jake. Her depression became so severe she only wanted to sleep. My husband suggested the Puddle just to get her moving again. The change was immediate. Thanks to the Puddle, we have our "puppy" back again (slimmer and more confident than ever)."
