The Vet Techs who work in our Rehab program thought that you should meet Wando.
Wando is a 12 year old, retired K-9 Officer.  He served in the City of Jeannette Police Department from 2005-2012.  His retirement came as a result of problems in his hips and low back.  Despite his physical limitations, Wando is a terrific and friendly canine.
We were lucky enough to meet Wando a few weeks ago when he came to our office for help with these worsening problems.
We are doing a lot to try and keep Wando's quality of life high, and keep him happily enjoying his retirement.  He sees Dr. Konegger for Acupuncture, Dr. Halden for Chiropractic, and he is having Rehab sessions twice a week.
In his Rehab visits, Wando works out in our Underwater Treadmill once a week, and he works on balance and strengthening exercises once a week.
Since his retirement, Wando lives with Justin Scalzo, the Officer with whom he was partnered.  Justin has set up a fund to help provide for this distinguished K-9 Officer's health care needs.  That fund is overseen by Greensburg Veterinary Associates, and neither Justin nor K.Vet participates in its administration.  If you'd like to support that effort, please feel free to contact them at 724-834-2090.
