With a little imagination, dogs can be effective and wonderful tools and companions in just about any physical therapy regimen . Six year old Jack recently had a cancerous tumor removed and was left without much movement on the left side of his body. To help increase mobility, Jack was prescribed a dog, treats, and a little physical therapy. The dog and the treats were part of the physical therapy regimen, to be exact.
Jack was prescribed 4 reps of feeding treats to a very friendly pooch!
Jack’s Dad reports that Jack is slowly regaining mobility in his left leg and is even able to begin riding his bike. Thank goodness for pooches, physical therapy and cool kid bikes!
