This is the best way to train the muscles for basic functions like standing and sitting, and more advanced exercise like agility or running. Exercise addresses the strength of muscles, but also the coordination of muscles to perform a movement smoothly. Specific exercises are prescribed for pets depending on any functional problems at home, the nature of their injury, illness, or surgery, areas of weakness, and goals. Not all exercises are good for each patient, which is why it is important to follow an individualized therapeutic exercise program. After each assessment, clients go home with a detailed and individualized home exercise program for their pet.
