Cannoli - November 2021
Meet Cannoli, a rounder version of Conrad. Cannoli is approximately 6 years old, male neutered with some patella and hips issues, with a history of skin problems. Sadly, he was surrendered to the Humane Society due to his skin issues though it has mostly cleared up. He did great for his treatment but he didn't like the aqua-acupuncture much and got a bit grumpy during it. He loves his Tui-na treatments and lays down and relaxed during the process. Humane Society employees have noticed improvement in his walking throughout the month.
