Show Notes

Buddy’s downward dog stretch you see in the early morning is integral to his overall wellness. Stretching maintains or increases the flexibility of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, etc.) and helps to prevent injury by prepping the body for activity. Proper flexibility makes any movement easier. Pets tend to lose flexibility as they age or as a result of an injury – both situations limit their ability to stretch on their own. As owners, we need to stretch our pets to help them move easier or heal faster. Listen to Cathy and Chris give tips on how to:

  • Get your pet's cooperation for a stretching session;
  • Warm up the tissue before stretching; 
  • Stretch the major muscle groups; and
  • Monitor different signals while stretching your pet.

Listen to this episode and stretch your mind so you can stretch your pet. Everyone will feel better!
