About arthritis treatment for dogs

I’m a human physio with a huge heart to help dogs to live pain free and move better.

Hi there! I’m Kylie.

I've been a physio for over 12 years and aged care is my specialty. I've seen the pain my human patients endure with arthritis and how it can be improved with undertaking a specific exercise program focused on strengthening weak muscles and stretching tight muscles around, or near, the arthritic joint.

When I started to see lots of dogs affected by hip arthritis with my side business The Doggie Bakery, I couldn't understand why owners of arthritic dogs would usually be given one or two options - arthritis pain medication and/or the recommendation for a very expensive hip replacement.

Then all the questions about dogs with arthritis symptoms started ruminating in my head:

Why aren't exercises recommended for dogs with arthritis as they are for humans with arthritis?

Do owners know how to identify pain in their dogs and alter their dog's activity to reflect flare-ups?

What if the cost of the surgery meant it couldn't be done for some time? Or at all?

Would the dog be put down prematurely?

What if the dog was allergic or sensitive to the arthritis pain medication?

How distressing would it be for owners who want to do more but just didn't know what or how?

My goal for Strong and Steady Canines is to equip dog parents with the knowledge and skills to do simple exercises at home with their dog.

Simple exercises can make a significant difference to your arthritic dog's wellbeing.

So I want to reassure you: you have other options than just giving pills and saving for surgery to help your senior dog live well.

I just love to help dogs and I can't wait to share my expertise to help you help your dog!
