Look at the progress our Kermit is making!! Kermit came to us from So. Carolina in search of a good home, and in need of some help. Kermit was found on the side of the road in a rural area when he was only about 2 months old. Some good people down South took him in and cared for him until he was ready to come up to Popcorn Park. It was originally thought that little Kermit was suffering with rickets, but when our veterinarian evaluated him when he arrived, she discovered that little Kermit had lax joints, most likely due to a collagen deficiency. A recent trip to the pediatric section of the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School confirmed her findings, and the therapy began to get Kermit back on his feet.....or, using his feet the correct way! Our veterinarian and our volunteer physical therapist, Sue Davis, came up with a treatment plan for Kermit that includes glucosamine and chondroitin supplements, physical therapy, and daily walks and playtime every day while wearing his flexible braces. These braces will help strengthen little Kermits legs. He is making amazing progress and we are confident that with 3 to 4 weeks of this therapy, he will be ready to go off to a brand new home! His prognosis for the future is very good and he plans to live a long and happy life! Although.....Kermit is pretty happy now as you can see, and nothing gets this boy down! Keep watching for more on Kermit's progress!
