We got our dog, his name is Harley, from a rescue. He had been severly abused, leaving him with a broken leg and shoulder. Then whoever did this to him never took Harley to get this unbelievable act fixed. So he healed with it broken. After we got him, my Vet suggeted a specialist to us to take him to. He said it was a bit late to rebreak it, and was pleased how well he does with it. He said that we will know when he will need pain management. After a year with our very sweet pet, he was given Dermamaxx to help with his pain. It is rare we see him uncomfortable anymore. For this, we are very happy.
