It's TPLO Tuesday! Layla is exercising in our Underwater Treadmill and receiving LASER therapy while in recovery from a TPLO surgery.

Joni presented with no sensation to her right rear leg and it was delayed in her left. This set of symptoms generally yields a poor prognosis. Dr. Dena Lodato brought her to surgery and decompressed the paralyzing disc herniation but she’s still has a long way to go before being able to function on her own. We still dont know how much function she will be able to recover but we are very hopeful. Joni just finished her first two weeks of physical rehabilitation and she is coming back next week to continue therapy. In the mean time, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, she needs them.

Cat Barzon CHT-V, our hyperbaric technician, is singing Willa Happy Birthday while she receives a hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Willa had a tibial plateau leaving osteotomy, or TPLO, to stabilize her knee from a ACL/CrCL rupture. She’s been recovering well from surgery and has been receiving hyperbaric oxygen treatments to help with swelling and inflammation. You’ll be running around in no time Willa and your mom says there’s cake for when you get home:) #HBOT #happybirthday #TPLO #vetsurgery #resurge
Buddy suffered multiple strokes to his brain at the beginning of the year. He stayed with us for about a month while he recovered the ability walk and function on his own. Yesterday, his rehab therapists got to hang out with him and awe in how well he has been doing. Never give up on the older dog. They have wisdom, perseverance, and a lot of love to still give. Thanks for always being everyone’s buddy, Buddy!
You can watch Buddy’s full video on the below.
Slow motion gait analysis can help objectively evaluate and record a patient’s gait. After data is collected a practitioner can calculate acceleration, velocity, joint angles and watch a patient’s gait in repetition to gain more knowledge of how they are doing or what may be abnormal. Further studies can compare data before and after treatments to quantify progress. Our Rehabilitation department works closely with surgery patients and staff to make better decisions about what treatments are best for our patients.
We all had a blast at Krewe Du Pooch 2022 this past Saturday! Thank you to all the organizers, volunteers, sponsors, and every paw that made it a success. Events like these save lives and we were so happy to be a part of it! Hope to see you all next year!
Who’s going to Krewe du Pooch?
We set aside a little time to try on our costumes for the Krewe du Pooch parade that we will be walking in as part of Queen Sadie Elizabeth’s royal court, or as we like to call it, her Blessing. However, Queen Sadie did not feel like getting out of bed that morning for dress rehearsal. Must be nice to be a Queen, lol.
Fact: A group of unicorns is called a “Blessing” and we feel truly blessed to have the hard working staff and growing culture that we have harnessed in this past year. A big THANKS to everyone who stayed after their shifts or worked extra hard to be able to dress up, as well as everyone that took care of our patients while we goofed off for a few minutes. Every one of you makes Resurge Veterinary Surgical Specialists and Rehabilitation a true blessing to come to work each day. Thank you all!
We hope to see you all at the parade on March 5th, 2022 at the Mandeville Lakefront!

Buddy had a poor prognosis when he was first referred to our physical rehabilitation service. Dr Yates at Baton Rouge Veterinary Specialists had diagnosed Buddy with multiple micro hemorrhages/bleeds in his midbrain. Buddy had a lot to overcome. He couldn’t get up or walk on his own, has a heart murmur, and laryngeal paralysis. He also had developed several pressure sores from being unable to get up for so long. Our therapists, Robby Porter CCRP and Melissa O’Brien RVT, CCRP, worked with Buddy daily for almost 4 weeks straight to help him regain function and independence. Each day they rewarded Buddy for simple tasks and in turn Buddy rewarded them with more motivation and drive to get better. We utilized hyperbaric oxygen and LASER therapy, however the bulk of Buddy’s care and success was due to our therapists skills and a few rolls of kinesiology tape. Knowledge, wisdom, bravery, passion and love, beyond any technology are the cornerstones of overcoming adversity. We should all be a little more like Buddy, our world could be a much nicer place.
