Hello and welcome to Jack. A super sweet rescue!
His mum is super vigilant amd loves to make sure all her dogs are well monitored for mobility issues.
She does this because she knows that early detection can reduce and control the severity of issues. She likes to do agility with her dogs, but only for fun and she is so keen to make sure its fun, that she does something called hoopers....all the fun and less pressure!
We are pleased to report that Jack got a clean bill of mobility health and is cracking on with having fun.
Call us today to book in your mobility check.
Hello and welcome back to Percy. He properly refused to show anyside other than this one, so it must be his best side!
He came to us for a luxury massage a while ago. His mum is super aware of bodies and how easy it is to not notice age or injury creeping in, so she came to us for an MOT.
Percy is doing fabulously. But its always nice to hear it be official. Another real positive to getting annual assessments, is that your therapist can be aware of how the body is changing and how it was in its prime. Not every person can touch thier toes, so if they get an injury and still can't touch thier toes it may not mean much, but if you were more flexible before, it is nice to know the difference as it will show you need more help to return to normal function. As therapists we can work things out without an early age assessment, but its very helpful to have one on board.
Owners can then get hints and tips on body improvement and not just injury recovery. Its not just cars that benefit from the MOT safty check.
Well done mum and Percy, keep up the good work!
Hello and welcome to Dennis. Sweet man with a lovely nature. Mum was worried as he has started to slow down on walks. So she felt it was a good idea to have his mobility checked.
Well this is a fantastic idea as it keeps you aware of how the body is doing and gives us an opportunity to make any tweeks and improvements before they get serious.
We did notice there was not as much hind limb muscle as we would like to see. This is not unusual in this breed. But knowing that, doesnt mean we have to accept it and not improve the situation.
So we set mum up with a home excericse plan and some muscle building. Clearly we cant do a high levels of cardio with a pug as they have small airways. But we are so pleased to see that mum has embrased the excericises and got him working our on his wobble cushion!
Well done mum and Dennis! Keep up the good work!
