"What Is ...... Series"

"What Is .... Series" gives an overview of common health conditions to help empower and educate on different conditions which result in arthritis. 


IMPORTANT NOTES - There is no such thing as "normal" - normal for one dog will be different to another


Only Vets Can Diagnose

  • How one dog copes with something will be unique to them. So?

  • So it means they won't necessarily always look like another dog with the same health condition. Huh?

  • So important for us to avoid sweeping statements or make assumptions. There are lots of variables which will impact how they cope - just a few below

    • Age

    • Breed

    • Body Condition Score - Being overweight will ONLY make things worse

    • Overall Health - is there more than one thing going on?

    • Lifestyle - past & present

    • What they consume - diet, medication

    • Immune System & How their body responds

    • Stress

I treat lots of dogs with these conditions – whether they have had surgery or not & they have a fab life!  With all these conditions, we treat the whole body - not just the area of concern.  So, if your dog is affected, firstly try not to panic & don't assume there is nothing - other than medication or surgery - that can help.  Lots of things can!  Yay!

If your dog has been diagnosed, or you suspect and would like to know how physiotherapy & nutrition can help, please get in touch.  Can't wait to help your dog feel and move better.
