    I thought if I made her use her muscles she will build back up and stand again. She favors one foot and has no balance help I want this to work [​IMG]

    Knowing what her injury is and how & when it happened might help.

    Well, it looks like the same principle as a chicken sling, which is used to keep them from putting all their weight on an injured leg as it heals, so if it seems to be helping I would continue as you have been and time will tell. I wish I could give you more helpful advice, but without any idea what happened I'm lost. Good luck with her.
