Dr Darin Trees, a physical therapist, now has a new patient: a cute fawn named Beau. Darin has been helping the young deer get around at the wildlife centre he runs in Texas. WebMD says that Beau walks with an antalgic gait, which is another name for a limp. The trainer has been exercising the baby deer’s legs in a swimming pool without putting too much pressure on them.
Darin recently put a video of Beau working out on TikTok. He showed the video of the fawn having trouble walking, then showed what the little guy was doing in the pool to get better. Storyful tells us (through Yahoo! Sports) that Darin and his wife, Lindsay Trees, are trying to help Beau.
Darin wrote in the caption, “Beau was dealt a bad hand in life, but he’s a strong boy with a lot of determination.”
Watch the movie below to see how well Beau is doing.
