Two of the most common conditions plaguing our dog population today are hip dysplasia and soft tissue injuries to the knee such as ACL tears (ruptures or strains of the anterior cruciate ligament in the stifle joint). Both are generally corrected by surgery and, particularly in the case of ACL tears, have a high rate of reoccurrence and post-surgical development of arthritis. Pet massage therapy can play a crucial role in optimal and rapid recovery from such surgeries and may play a role in reducing the risk of re-injury. Post-surgical confinement also causes boredom and restlessness for many animals and diminished the health of the immune system which is dependent on activity for optimal health. Animal massage can be used to reduce boredom, decrease stress and increase relaxation for dogs and cats during periods of confinement.
If you are keen to make sure that your dog is being fed enough calcium in his diet, but your dog is Lactose Intolerant or you simply do not want to feed him to much dairy, there are other ways to provide him with calcium. Spinach is an excellent source of calcium, and one cup of cooked spinach has a comparable calcium content to 1 cup of reduced fat milk. A cup of spinach can be easily mixed into a bowl of dog food and most dogs will not have any objection to eating it. There are also many calcium supplements available for dogs - ask your vet for specific recommendations for your dog.
