Did you know that 80% of dogs over the age of 8 suffer from arthritis? Perhaps even more surprising, 20% of dogs of any age are likely to suffer from it!

You can’t cure arthritis. But you can manage it and slow down its progress. The best way to manage arthritis is to use a combination of different treatments. There is so much you can do as an owner-such as managing your dog’s exercise, weight and home environment. But a team approach works best! There are a wide range of medications and treatments your vet can select from, and physiotherapy treatments such as laser therapy, massage and strengthening exercises, along with hydrotherapy, can also be a critical part of your dog’s treatment plan. It is important though, to keep monitoring how your dog is coping because arthritis will progress and so treatment needs to be reviewed, and possibly changed, as it does.

Many people aren’t aware of this wide range of treatments to help you manage arthritis in your dog. At Woof & Ready we would like to offer you the opportunity to come and find out more!

Canine Conditioning Workshop

Conditioning helps improve performance and prevent injury…and is fun!

This workshop looks at 3 key elements of canine conditioning-strength, proprioception and flexibility.

In this 3 hour workshop you will learn the ‘rules’ of conditioning and how to:

-carry out exercises correctly and safely

-target strengthening for specific areas needed for your sport

-improve body awareness and proprioception (vital for skilled movements)

-incorporate your conditioning into your lifestyle and training

End of season physio checks

Our sports dogs have worked hard over the summer season, and will all benefit from a maintenance check. Contact me to book an appointment, or keep our eye on here for my ‘end of season clinics’ running at Dig It Dog Training Club.

I will never know your dog as well as you do, but I can get to know their gait, their behaviour and their potential issues and together we can keep on top of any problems. If the worse does then happen, I can work more effectively with your vet to treat and rehabilitate your dog.
