Comtesse is happier overall and more alert and interacting with her owner. NSAIDS intake has been reduced. She started jumping up on sofa anf bed again and beeing her cheeky previous self around the house. Comtesse now enjoys short but frequent walks with her owner and really loves doing her prescribed at home rehabilitation exercises.
