In my opinion, part of owning an older dog means ensuring you devote time to them for bonding, love, attention and care.
Daisy and I are just finishing a Spa Weekend.
Daisy’s spa weekend started on Friday with a regular acupuncture session. Daisy gets acupuncture every 5 weeks:
On Saturday, it was then time for Daisy’s hydrotherapy session. Daisy swims every fortnight (2 weeks) to keep her muscles strong and to keep range of motion in her hind legs:
And today (Sunday), it was time for Daisy to enjoy a massage and laser treatment – lovingly delivered by me – her personal massage therapist and DoggyMom:
The only thing that was missing from Daisy’s spa weekend was a bath. But that’s because she had a bath last weekend!
How do you spend quality time with your elderly dog?
What great ideas. I used hydrotherapy once a week as a home treatment for my arthritic guinea pig. It seemed to really help him and he didn’t need any medication for 8 months since he was diagnosed because we were able to manage it.
