Spinning before laying down, grunting when getting up from a nap, excessive panting or even over grooming can be signs that your dog is in pain. It's a myth, that as dogs age they continuously slow down. There is no need for our four-legged family members to slow down as they get older, rather age gracefully. As our beloved pets age, they need more support from their loving family and us…your veterinarian!
Cold laser therapy, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, or even joint supplements can help your dog live a longer, happier life. Cold laser therapy eases sore muscles by reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow and stimulating cellular activity. It is safe, painless and fast. Acupuncture is becoming more and more popular with humans as well as pets. It stimulates the release of the body's own pain relieving and anti-inflammatory substances, relaxes the muscles, increases blood flow and in conjunction with Chinese herbal medicine can strongly improve your pet's quality of life and keep them comfortable.
Return some of the love your pet has given you over the years by ensuring your senior family member stays pain free for the rest of his/her years.
