Originally designed for use at their seminars, Physical Therapy for the Canine Athlete was written by Suzanne Clothier and Sue Ann Lesser, DVM, two leading experts on the canine athlete. In this informative book, they offer practical information and hands-on techniques for keeping your canine athlete healthy, and for helping him recover from injury.
You'll learn injury assessment, as well as how, when and why to use massage, manipulation, ice/heat therapy, and hydrotherapy to speed recovery and assist healing. This booklet makes an excellent companion to the video, Your Athletic Dog: A Functional Approach. A "must-have" for the handler of any competitive dog!
