There is really a lot that we can do to help our aging pets.

Physiotherapy assessment helps us to gain the full picture so we can then target any issues and ways the pet might be compensating with those problems. Old pets often need mobility support and owners need advice on exercise and how to modify the home environment.
Tips: Senior pets and pressure sores- bedding advice Similar to humans, dogs may develop pressure sores if they lie on their bed or floor for long periods of time, if their mobility is reduced. Pressure sores often develop over bony prominences (the bony points with very thin skin and little fat covering) such as the hips and elbows causing damage to the skin barrier and discomfort.
