How do you get your dog back to top form and condition?
During and after an injury, rest is compulsory for the injured parts of the body and a dog will have to return to sporting under guidance. Veterinarian Ronald Mouwen together with the team from the FitDog program have developed and compiled a program in which the healthy part of the body can be kept fit and after the return to function, the injured parts can be highly targeted again for return to top condition. A scheme based on the basic motor function properties will be made use of.
