The only book to cover physical therapy for dogs, Canine Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy, 2nd Edition provides an understanding of physical therapy techniques and intervention for dogs suffering from debilitating conditions. The book includes four new chapters, hundreds of illustrations that highlight key concepts and procedures, and case studies and specific therapies that can be used as guidelines for the management of clinical patients. Author Darryl Millis offers the perspective of a veterinarian skilled in orthopedics and orthopedic surgery, and co-author David Levine is a respected physical therapist with experience working with both dogs and human patients. By applying the principles of physical therapy described in this unique book, and by viewing therapy and exercise videos on a companion website, you can help dogs achieve a faster and more complete recovery. Detailed drawings of comparative anatomy between dogs and people make it easier to apply your knowledge of human anatomy to the anatomy of the dog. Coverage of therapeutic modalities describes their application to dogs and how to adapt common "human" modalities for dogs. Several chapters on exercising dogs cover the basic principles of exercise and how they may be applied to dogs, and how to adapt common "human" exercises for dogs. Unique coverage of physical therapy for specific diagnoses describes treatment for a variety of conditions. A chapter on physical examination covers everything from general orthopedic assessment to surgery. Invaluable specific protocols for postoperative treatment help to ensure the successful healing of dogs and their return to full mobility. Sample protocols provide a useful reference for common conditions in patients not experiencing complications. Medical record forms are included, and are easy to modify to meet the needs of your veterinary practice. New chapters keep you up to date with coverage of joint mobilization, rehabilitation of the athletic patient, biomechanics of rehabilitation, and physical therapy for wound care.

Research on human athletes is changing what we know about stretching. For example, it is now recognized that aggressive stretching should only take place after muscles are warmed up and shortened from exertion. Authors Sasha and Ashley Foster have applied this latest research to dogs many of whom compete in vigorous canine sporting events so that you can learn how to safely and effectively stretch your dog to prevent injuries, maintain joint integrity, and improve you dog's fitness whether he is an elite canine athlete or a lap dog. Over 300 photos and diagrams demonstrate how to safely and effectively stretch each major muscle group in great detail. Special emphasis is given on correct hand placement for joint stabilization and how to maintain straight plane movement. Stretching routines are presented for both large and small dogs, older dogs, and those that are involved in a variety of dog sports.

Structure, Function and Rehabilitation

Anatomy, particularly functional anatomy, is a vital and dynamic subject, an appreciation of which leads not only to superior husbandry and welfare, but also to a better understanding of the anatomical challenges associated with riding, training, overtraining, injury and rehabilitation. Using Alexa McKenna's fabulous illustrations, this book shows the correlation of the skeleton, muscular system and locomotion, providing a clear insight into the functional and dysfunctional horse. It also addresses the largely misunderstood concept of 'perfect conformation' and looks at the effect on function of the rider and tack, using cutting-edge diagnostic techniques such as thermal imaging and gait analysis. Again with the emphasis on the visual, readers will be able to appreciate how muscles function in differing athletic disciplines by analysing the heat generated in musculoskeletal structures after exercise. This will also highlight the importance of post-competition recovery. The book concludes with a range of useful techniques to improve the function of any horse, including stretches, taping, wrapping and other proprioceptive techniques to increase balance, flexibility, awareness and posture.
