Coonhound Paralysis

This blog talks about our experience when Goya (our 150lb English Mastiff) came down with coonhound paralysis (also called acute idiopathic polyradiculoneuritis).

Veterinary rehabilitation centers

It is amazing that it has taken us 4 months to discover that there are rehabilitation centers for dogs, but I just found some things on the web since I've been Goggling our blog with "coonhound paralysis" to see how high it was on the list of returned sites.
None of the rehabilitation centers are near Pittsburgh, but we are considering trying to take Goya to one near Gary's parents' house in Virginia.
Here's a link that has a list of centers around the US (about half way down the page)

This page also has links to physical therapy special interest groups of professional organizations and lots of other information that we haven't looked into yet. They seem pertinent now that Goya has some control of his limbs again.
I wonder why the several vets we have contact with never mentioned this subfield. Maybe its because there isn't a facility near Pittsburgh and they need so much special equipment? I dunno.
