Walking in shallow water on firm flat sand can be great for the “less able”

Holly was an epic swimmer but that doesn’t suit her condition now ... too much rotation around her lumbosacral joint whilst swimming has left her sore before... doesn’t mean she won’t try tho!!

Walking in the shallow water encourages her to pick up her feet and use her limb muscles rather than walking like a sulking teenager!!

CAM is just starting a new booklet on appropriate exercise for a dog with significant arthritis..... we need photos!!!

So calling CAM followers please upload below photos of your dog exercising appropriately and we may well be in touch for the hard copy for the booklet.... Fame awaits!!!

Canine Arthritis Management

WARNING... CAM followers that scatter feed... the slugs are out in force so make sure you are using suitable parasiticide for lung worm prevention. They can get Lungworm from ingesting slugs and snails or even from contact with their slime trails!!
I’ve started scatter feeding in the patio whilst they are at their worse!!

The patch of missing hair remains!!
This is from her epidural for placing stem cells and platelet rich plasma in her epidural space.
She also had it done to her shoulders and iliopsoas muscle insertion.

Is this proven to work.... no.

Are there lots of studies on it ...no

Would I advise others... I’d say every case is different and it’s an individuals choice.

Has it worked for us... I think it helps... there are so many other variables that are being managed it is impossible to say for sure.
Had it got the possibility of creating caregiver placebo effect, where I think it’s worked and actually the improvement in function is insignificant ... hell yeah... the more expensive involved and time consuming is the more likely it will leave you hoping to the point you believe you see improvement ... “how could it not work!!”
I have seen less neuropathic pain episodes. Her demeanour and wish to go out is maintained, she hasn’t deteriorated.

This is a massive problem when trying to develop reliable safe therapies for arthritic dogs.... it’s a progressive condition that comes without a crystal ball. The fact that she hasn’t worsened could indeed be a sign of effect!!

Food for thought hey !
