Welcome to Jake

Hello and welcome to jake. 

This hansome cockerspaniel was rescently diagnosed with hip dysplasia and arthritis. 

Both owner and vet agree conservative managment is ideal in this case and not surgery. 

So he has come for physio. He had already responded well to the accupuncture which relieved the pain. Having done our assessment, we have set him up with a home regime. This includes a little weight loss, muscle building, some adjustments to his home life and some stretches. 

We are confident he will feel better soon. Once we get his hips doing a more comfortable level of healthy excercise, and we get some muscle built up, this will support the hips further and keep him comfortable and slow the progression of the arthritis. 

Good luck mum and Jake, you're going to be fine, fit and healthy.
