Pain and Arthritis in Cats

2 months ago · · Comments Off on Pain and Arthritis in Cats · Rehabilitation ·, , ,

20140417_142434-2The health and wellness of our feline friends is a top priority for loving cat owners. So as cats age it is important to be mindful that they are prone to the ailments and “slowing down” that come with it.
Arthritis, the inflammation of joints, is a common condition in older cats. As they age the smooth cartilage begins to wear down causing painful friction between the bones. Effected areas can include shoulders, hips, elbows and the spine. Cats carrying extra weight are especially prone to arthritis, as the additional weight places greater strain on their joints.

Dogs on Wheels!

4 months ago · · Comments Off on Dogs on Wheels! · Rehabilitation ·, ,

rynoDogs become such an integral part of the family that it’s impossible to imagine not providing them with the best quality of life. But, like humans, dogs are susceptible to disease and daveinjury, sometimes resulting in mobility issues or even amputation.
Luckily, there are many options to manage your dog’s quality of life in regards to their mobility and comfort. One such option might be the use of a cart or a “dog wheelchair.” This device can help dogs who are suffering from paralysis, amputatio n, limb deformities, neurologic conditions and limb weakness.

There are many benefits to carts, beyond freedom; dogs suffering from neurologic conditions are essentially retraining their nervous system to stand in a normal position when they use a cart. It also reduces and relieves muscle tension and helps regain strength and a cart allows for better mobility and a decrease in the stress on parts of their body due to over-compensation.
