Nearly 40% of dogs will develop arthritis in their lifetime, limiting their ability to walk, interact with their families, and live a long and happy life. There are many different types of arthritis, but since canines are living longer lives due to good nutrition and medical care, age-related degenerative arthritis is one of the most common forms. Senior pet therapy is increasingly necessary to enhance your pup’s quality of life and it’s important to know the symptoms and treatment options available to you right in St. Petersburg.

Having to take your dog to a Tampa animal clinic is stressful for both of you. A basic checkup can be hard, and everything becomes more much more emotionally taxing if your dog happens to be ill. Having to put your furry friend through surgery or take medications can be draining, since many people view their dog as a member of the family and want to provide them with the best possible care. However, there are other methods of caring for your pooch besides drugs and surgery. One new treatment that is quickly gaining national popularity is chiropractic care for your canine. If your dog is old or has been limping about Tampa more than usual, you may want to head to a nearby animal clinic and give this new therapy a try.

Man’s best friend is not only an adorable companion but a tough one as well. Dogs have stood up to weather, terrain, physical labor, and other harsh conditions for hundreds of years, and although they may not want to believe it, they aren’t invincible. Pups are creatures that don’t want to show pain, and often go to great lengths to hide it, thanks to their basic survival instincts that were necessary for their wild counterparts. It’s important to be aware of indicators that your pet is in pain— pain that can be managed with the help of an animal rehabilitation center right here in Tampa.
