Physical Therapy Guidelines: The game plan: -Review each video with daytime caregivers in person -Let's have two people doing the therapy with Sheena for safety purposes. She is a big girl and I want to make sure she is comfortable, doesn't get upset, and doesn't fall. Please feel free to grab me when needed to help! I will be doing the first few sessions this week as well. -***Very Important** that her dog run is DRY for the exercises so that she does not fall or slip. -Also, we want to make sure that we don't push her too far. We are going to very gradually increase the repetitions and timing for each exercise. For now, if the scheduled # of repetitions or timing is too much, please let me know and we can adjust. Here are the physical therapy exercises we will be doing with Sheena: 1. 3-Legged Stances (start watching video at 1:03): 3 repetitions Lift one paw. Hold until Sheena starts to wiggle the paw. Put paw down. Make sure to be ready to support Sheena's midsection in case she falls so that she does not hurt herself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTFRWyVri3w&t=38s 3-Legged Stand These exercises focus on strengthening of the limbs for your pet. The following video will lead you through the various types of 3-legged and 2-legged stands... www.youtube.com 2.
