Show Notes

Dubbed by some as "The Mother of Canine Rehabilitation," it was an honor having Laurie McCauley, DVM, DACVSMR, CCRT, CVA, CVC, on our show to discuss how each of us has the ability to improve our dog's health and longevity through exercise. It's not hard as long as you know a few basics, like the type  of exercise to use to achieve specific goals for your dog's body AND brain. Listen and learn:

  • When is my dog geriatric?
  • What happens to my dog's body and brain with aging? 
  • How can I positively prevent or reverse some of the natural effects of aging?
  • How to perform Rhythmic Stabilization, one of Dr. McCauley's Top 5 Exercises for Geriatric Dogs.
  • Signs to look for before, during , and after exercise
  • How to create an exercise program for your dog?
  • What is Myos and how can this supplement help build muscle?
