AN ANIMAL expert based at Clent Hills Pet Fitness and Rehabilitation Centre will be giving a free presentation for dog owners concerned about their pets’ canine osteoarthritis.
Emily Ashdown, a registered veterinary nurse and physiotherapist with the practice will give the talk at Bromsgrove School at 7pm on Wednesday, December 4.
The chronic condition can impact a dog’s mobility, body shape and activity leading to stiffness and pain.
While canine osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition which cannot be cured, it can be managed with the right combination of medication, hydrotherapy and physiotherapy, combined with lifestyle and environmental changes.
Emily will speak about what can be done to manage the condition at the session aimed at those whose dogs have been diagnosed with arthritis and owners of older dogs.
Cash raised on the night will support the Canine Arthritis Management charity.
