Canine Physio Evening
Did you know that a dog can do a plank to help engage core muscles or that a sit-to-stand is the equivalent to a squat?
Canine therapeutic exercises can be fun and become part of your normal routine with little to no added time whilst having positive impacts on your dog’s posture and fitness!
Come along to our therapeutic exercise evening with your dog to have a go at some exercises and learn about the benefits.
We are running two sessions on Thursday the 9th November:
7.15pm – 7.45pm
8pm - 8.30pm
This event is open to Ash Tree Vets clients only and spaces are limited with just 4 dogs per class.
Contact Sophie on email@example.com to book your space, and include the following information in your email: dog name, surname, breed.
Bring some yummy treats along, or favourite toy, for motivation.
Please note this is a multi-dog event so dogs will need to be comfortable around others, but we will make sure it is fun.
As spaces are limited - if you are unable to make it, please let us know so we can offer the slot to someone on the waiting list.
The Benefits of Therapeutic Exercises
Not only do therapeutic exercises form the foundation of a physio plan for your pet during rehabilitation from injury or disease, but are also essential in maintaining strength as your dog ages as well as building strength and muscle in younger dogs or working dogs.
The benefits of therapeutic exercises:
- Increased joint range of motion
- Increased strength
- Restoration of movement
- Improved gait
- Decreased pain
- Improved healing
- Improved posture and stance
- Improved muscle mass and fitness
Examples of exercises include:
- Sit-to-stand (this is the dog version of a squat)
- A biscuit stretch
