Combined with a proper diet, physical rehabilitation can help your overweight dog lose weight and/or help your dog maintain an appropriate weight.
A Weight Management Program For Canines
We offer a canine weight management program with low-impact physical and strengthening exercises. An overweight dog has greater stress on painful and weak joints, a higher risk for diabetes, and certain breeds have a much greater risk of herniating a disc in their back because of obesity. A dog that is in good physical condition is less likely to suffer musculoskeletal injuries.
The underwater treadmill provides a safe, low-impact way to exercise your dog and can ultimately help him/her lose weight.
It is very low impact so injuries can be avoided while working all of the major muscle groups of the legs and moving the joints through a full range of motion. This is an excellent way for dogs to stay in shape, safely and effectively in a controlled environment.
