Mobility problems, poor performance or behavioural problems could all be back related - get help from the expert's ebook now.
Did you know that: Nearly everything can affect your dog's back and his mobility as he transfers the forward thrust of the hindquarters along his spine into the front end. So, conformation, musculo-skeletal problems such as hip dysplasia, arthritis etc., slippery surfaces, running, jumping, twisting and competition all take their toll on the dog's back and therefore his mobility.
A dog will alter the way it carries/balances itself to compensate for an injury (however slight), a bump, strain, landing heavily while jumping, a twist or even if he has just "tweaked" something while rolling.
This often results in excess strain to parts of the dog's back and, even after the original cause has gone, can show up in a change in the dog's performance or behaviour.
All dogs are athletes! Obviously, performance and working dogs are at higher risk of injury but pet dogs equally suffer from slips, trips, bumps, falls, twists, boisterous play and orthopedic problems which could alter their gait and lead to other injuries.
There are many things a dog owner can do to help look after their dog's back and general mobility. Jill Firth's new e-book "Canine Athletes and Couch Pet-atoes" shows you how and is available for download NOW!
