Pain and Arthritis in Cats

11 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!

1 year 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.

November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month

1 year ago · · Comments Off on November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month · Community ·,

hippieIf you’re thinking about adopting a pet, you may want to consider adopting a senior dog or cat. Sadly, seniors spend the most amount of time at the shelter and have a higher rate of euthanasia. Although some people may be deterred because they feel they won’t have as much time with their companion, older animals have a lot to offer!

chiko-5Chiko

“Chiko is 11 years old. He did agility training before his injuries. He loves to do odd jobs, like bring me my shoes and slippers when I ask for them. He likes to get his bowl when it is time for dinner. Most people say he is a very happy dog, I agree. He is super sweet and loves having his ears and butt scratched. He eats just about everything. One of his favorite treats is carrots. He likes cucumbers and broccoli stems. He loves bread and can smell it from a distance.

November 2016 Hennessey

hennesseyHennessey

“Hennessey came to Four Paws Animal Foundation at 10 weeks of age from Chicago Animal Care & Control where he was listed as a stray; unable to urinate on his own, impacted bowel and possible paralysis of his back legs. After a complete and thorough exam by our own veterinary clinic, where x-rays were also taken, it was determined that 2 vertebrae (one of which was fractured) were pinching his spine and blocking signals to his brain. We decided the best course of action would be for him to have an evaluation and course of treatment by Integrative Pet Care of Hanover Park once we felt he was strong enough. We are so happy that he has responded to Acupuncture, Laser and Exercise treatments and has improved greatly as evidenced by him being able to stand on his own even for a short time.  Withhennessey-6 another course of treatment and continuing exercises at home we hope he will eventually be able to walk on his own but for now we are so encouraged by his progress.  Thank you to the wonderful staff and IPC Hanover Park!”

Sadie is a miniature short, smoothed-haired Dachshund Rescue age 9 yrs 7 mos. She came into our lives early 2008, just prior to her turning 1 yr old. A co-worker (her previous owner) was in need at the time to find Sadie a new home. We were blessed when Sadie became part of our family.
Sadie, the Angel that she is, with a fantastic, energetic, friendly personality has a temperament that is active, playful, and devoted.
In October 2007, at the age of 7 mos., her previous owner brought Sadie to be seen by a DVM for concern of her wide stance in her rear limbs. Hip dysplasia was ruled out. Imaging had been performed. No significant abnormalities sadie-potm-3-10-4were seen.
