Orthomanual check-ups for your dog
Sport check-up: Preventing is even better than curing
Sporting or working with your dog is very enjoyable. To prevent unnecessary injuries of lameness due to working or sporting I advise an Orthomanual Sport check and examination for your dog.
Sport checks from an orthomanual perspective consist of:
- Assesment of the gait
- Examining the orientation of the vertebrae, joints and the skeleton in general
- Assessment of the joints, bones, tendons and muscles (by means of palpation)
- Support if necessary with X-rays, possibly a blood test (will be when indicated by your own vet)
Treatment and advice:
- Correction of the misaligned joint or vertebral positions
- Training and rehabilitation advice, and / or prescription of medical therapy
We advise that you get your dog checked at least 4 weeks before starting training. Your attention will be brought to your dog’s possible weak spots and we’ll teach you how to deal with them..
GET YOUR DOG CHECKED BEFORE TRAINING WITH HIM OR HER.
Puppy check-ups are already possible from the age of three months
Puppies are growing very fast, which can cause an extra burden to their skeleton (bones and joints such as shoulder and elbow, knee and hip joint). The muscles are not fully grown yet and a clumsy pup is no exception.
A puppy likes to play carelessly and rashly. He tumbles head over heels, slides, and jumps up and down. Because the muscles, tendons and the skeleton are not strong enough yet, misalignment can occur in the spine and / or joints. Do not expect your puppy to show you that something is wrong. He's too excited to stop and to show that he is less comfortable. Lameness and pain may result. And the owners are just glad the puppy is active and playful.
Let’s protect a puppy and a young dog ‘against themselves’. Have a puppy check-up! If everything is okay: hurray! If the joints are unbalanced or back and spinal problems occur, we can try to solve this or in any case teach you to take it into account.
Long live our puppy!
