Some pets benefit from modifications to their homes to minimize risk of injury, and maximize quality of life. This can be extra helpful after acute injury, if they have chronic health issues, or just as they age.
To best advocate for your pet, it is helpful to empower yourself with knowledge about nutrition, exercise, relaxation and other areas of holistic animal wellness. Some of the publications I have found helpful are:
• Whole Dog Journal
• Dog Naturally Magazine
• American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association
There are currently only 2 programs in the country training for canine rehabilitation certification. For any acute injuries benefitting from rehabilitation, going to their websites will help you find a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner/therapist close to you.
• University of Tennessee – Canine Rehabilitation Certificate Program
UTenn Vet C.E.
• Canine Rehabilitation Institute (Florida)
