Tripawd Exercise: Cookie Stretch Fun

January 28th, 2016 · 1 Comment · Pet Health

Here’s a fun Tripawd exercise you can do right now to help your three-legged hero stay loose and flexible: cookie stretches!

Cookie stretches are great for dogs who are not showing signs of acute back or neck pain. Do this first thing in the morning before a long walk. Your dog will love getting a treat to start the day!

Remember, the goal is to stretch from front to rear, not actually turn. Do one side, hold for fifteen to twenty seconds, then do the other side. Repeat three to five times, once or twice daily.

Cookie Stretch Tips

You don’t necessarily have to use food to bribe your dog. Try using your dog’s favorite toy for this game. Or a low-cal carrot or other non-fattening food. Remember: every extra pound on a dog is like five on a human!

Also, don’t force your dog into a stretch and if s/he shows signs of tiring, stop, you’ve gone too far. Some dogs will need more time to move into a deep stretch. Ask your vet if you have any questions about this exercise.

Vet Expert Mike Petty Shares Tripawd Pain Management Tips

January 14th, 2016 · No Comments · Pet Health

Tripawds can do lots of things that four legged animals can do, but it can often come at a cost. Shoulder, neck and hip pain is something most Tripawds will experience just because of their altered gait. Unfortunately dogs and cats are really great at hiding that pain, so it’s up to us to recognize pain and learn how to treat it too.

Lucky for us that’s what the January 10th edition of Tripawd Talk Radio is all about!
