Meet Eli Helmstetter
- Labrador Retriever
- 13 ½ years
- Partial ACL tears in both rear knees
Eli was 10 when it was discovered he had partial ACL tears in both knees. Due to a heart condition we decide not to proceed with surgery. Swim has kept Eli very comfortable & mobile for many years. When he first developed symptoms of the ACL tears he could barely move & swim was the only place he had some comfort and could slowly but surely make progress rebuilding muscle strength to help with the ACL issues.
