PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Animal Rescue League says treatment for the paralyzed dog found on the side of the road in Penn Hills is moving along.

Last week, Animal Rescue League officials said Gracie, the beagle mix, was not a candidate for surgery to fix her paralyzed back legs as they had hoped.

But now, they say they’ve put a treatment plan in place for her that includes cage rest and a four to six week course of physical therapy three times a day.

She is also getting bladder treatments and seeing veterinarians at the Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center.

After her course of therapy, officials say she will be reevaluated to determine what steps to take next. Those include more therapy, being fitted for a cart or more treatment and testing.

In this latest update on Gracie’s condition, the Animal Rescue League is also thanked all of her supporters.

They say her treatment is an expensive one, currently at about $3,800.
