Dog water treadmill therapy

I have been reading about some great clinics around the county that offer water therapy for dogs. Some of the owners were giving very positive reviews on how the exercise is helping their dogs recover from accidents or surgery.

Dogs with the beginning stages of arthritis are also being helped with water therapy. They have to work hard but the buoyancy of the water doesn’t put the stress on their joints.

I’ll be reading more on this topic. Older dogs and certain breeds are prone to arthritis and, as long as the dog enjoys the workouts, this seems like a very valuable activity.

It would be great if rehab clinics for people added something like this…then dogs and their people could work-out together!!

Another testimonial for ThePetCheckup – at home pet health kit

We received another nice testimonial from someone today via email. It’s always so nice to see how this simple product is helping so many people care for their dogs and cats.

“I just wanted to tell you your product is wonderful. I always tell my vets about it and hope that they may incorporate the kits in their businesses. It’s such a nice feeling to take extra care in your pet while at the same time keeping them comfortable and home.” M.B.

Dog and cat health…early detection is the best medicine

I just discovered that there is an alternative and complimentary medical dictionary online.

Below is the definition of early detection. Everyone agrees on this atleast.

(Noun) In complementary, conventional, and natural medicine, the act of discovering a disorder or disease before it has fully developed.

if your dog receives a kidney disease diagnosis

Many of our customers have dogs or cats who have been diagnosed with some form of kidney disease.

It is one of the most common illnesses for dogs and cats, especially as they age.

But there has been alot of growth in research and in understanding this illness and some of the news is quite encouraging. If there are enough functioning kidney cells, then it is possible for the kidneys to “restart” themselves and resume normal functioning for years.

This will probably be the first thing that the veterinarian will do…flush out the kidneys with large amounts of intravenous fluids and see how the animal responds.
