PINEHURST, N.C., Aug. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Assisi Animal Health developed the innovative Assisi Loop®. The Loop is a NPAID®, or non-pharmaceutical and anti-inflammatory device. As an electromagnetic treatment for dogs, the Loop helps heal wounds and treat a range of medical issues, including lumbar stenosis, Wobblers and IVDD.
According to Assisi Animal Health, the recent case of a dog that collapsed while hiking in North Vancouver, B.C., with his fit, 20-year-old owner has made international headlines. A helicopter rescue team had to use a stretcher to carry the dog 3 miles before finally airlifting him to safety.
Dog owners must take precautions before embarking on a lengthy hike, walk or run with their pets. If the dog is overweight or unfit, then you will have to limit its physical activity accordingly.
Hot temperatures and high humidity can drain a dog’s energy and cause dehydration. This is especially common in canines with short noses, excess skin or breathing problems, such as bulldogs and mastiffs.
Dog owners who are unsure of their pet’s limitations should discuss them with a veterinarian. Additionally, puppies younger than 18 weeks old should never go out for rigorous activities.
Your dog also should be up to date with vaccinations, and it should take preventative medication for ticks, ear mites, fleas, worms and other parasites. Ultimately, a responsible and preventative approach to vet care will save you money and keep your dog physically active.
Dehydration is a real concern when enjoying the outdoors with your dog. Always carry enough water for both you and your canine companion. Snacks are also advisable, which you should dispense at regular rest periods.
Before hitting the trail, make sure your dog can handle the terrain. Environmental hazards, such as large rocks and cacti, can severely injure dogs that are not used to them.
If the area has rivers or streams, teach your dog to swim before you go. Not all canines are able swimmers, and many are terrified of water.
While a leash may be bothersome, you must keep curious dogs away from dangerous wildlife. Canines can also eat poisonous plants or bugs. A leash will help avoid these dangers and will keep your dog away from other hikers, their pets, horses and cyclists. Furthermore, keeping your dog on a leash will reduce the risk of injury.
