"J" - Jumping- NO JUMPING (跳躍)

No jumping is what I am always telling my clients after injury or surgery!

Friday 4th May 2018

No jumping on and off the sofa and no jumping up on 2 legs or dancing. Jumping is a high impact activity. Many injuries are often caused when a pet jumps off something, and not necessarily a great height. We also see many dogs jumping up at their owner to get attention and that’s may seem ok when they fit and healthy. But if there is an injury then putting their body weight through just 2 legs can delay healing or cause additional problems.

跳躍能增加對關節的壓力,有時更會使關節受傷。當中包括由高處跳下及跳起站立。當然,對四肢已經受傷,例如骨折或關節移位的動物來說更有機會傷上加傷。因此,診症中我經常對主人強調要小心控制寵物不能讓他們跳躍。
