How Canine Rehab Helps Rear Leg Tripawd Sasha

This is a short story regarding our rear leg Tripawd Sasha, a 9 year old pitbull that had her leg amputated on October 28 20201 due to the very aggressive cancer osteosarcoma located in her left rear leg. Sasha being an older and unfortunately tad overweight dog we knew she needed help adjusting to her new life as a Tripawd.

After some research and finding this foundation it just made the decision easier to make and off we went to the nearest team of therapists. Our consultation with this awesome team we were given hope and assurance that she will adjust just fine.

Hydrotherapy for Rear Leg Tripawd Sasha

There are quite a few at home exercises for our rear leg Tripawd:

  1. Mattress walking
  2. Figure 8
  3. Step stretches
  4. Step forward and back steps
  5. Sit to stand down to stand
  6. Rear limb weight shift.

All these exercises are given to her to improve core strength so that she wouldn’t need to overcompensate for the missing limb and strengthen the remaining rear limb.


Sasha and I have been for the most part on a daily regime of exercises and with the help of Tripawds (which I discovered with help of Dr Sue Cancer Vet) and Physical therapist Franca Ayala MVT, RVT CCRP.

We know our rear leg Tripawd Sasha will be able to thrive while fighting off Osteosarcoma.
