NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

A North Ridgeville police K9 has been cleared to go back to work after suffering a spinal cord injury almost two months ago.

Sinta injured his spinal cord during his routine training on April 16. He was given a grim prognosis from the vet - if he didn't get better within 48 hours he would have to be put down.
 
Sinta got better and completed his final day of physical therapy Friday at Animal Clinic Northview.
 
There is still some recovery ahead for him, it is small in scale compared to what he has gone through.
 
Authorities say at this point his recovery is considered a success.

North Ridgeville police thank the staff at Animal Clinic Northview for their incredible work with him.

When Sinta was injured, police said they did not have high hopes for him to return to work but through the clinic's efforts he is almost back to his pre-injury days.
